The Most Feature-Rich and Comprehensive Window Manager

Actual Window Manager is a technologically advanced utility tool that interacts with the Windows operating system's shell to bring the extended manipulation functionality to every window in the system.

It allows you to roll up/unroll windows, hide them to the Windows notification area (system tray), keep them always-on-top of others, make them semi-transparent - and many other advanced window actions available both in the automatic way (upon startup, activation/deactivation, minimization etc.) and in the manual way (via extra buttons added to each window's title bar or via extra options added to each window's system window menu).

Actual Window Manager keeps track of all the configuration changes you make to each individual window and applies the changes automatically on-the-fly! In addition, Actual Window Manager operates semi-automatically, therefore you will not be required spend a lot of time trying to understand how it works.

What's New in This Release:

  • Note: Hardware accelerated mirroring is available only when the Aero visual theme is active.
  • Save Idle Screens automatic mode is improved:
  • correct reaction on a desktop configuration change
  • screen savers do not start anymore if the Control Center is stopped
  • screen savers stop when the Control Center is stopped or unloaded
  • Windows 8/8.1: Support of StartIsBack Plus is improved.
  • Windows 8.1: Look of the Start button in Actual Taskbar is improved.
  • Windows 8.1: Start screen opened via Actual Taskbar's Start button did not close on the second click on Start button.
