What's new in WindowManager 9.0.2:New: further speed optimizations Fix: long time delay before moving certain windows
If you are one of the many who work in front of a computer on a daily basis, then you probably have a favorite window layout for the applications you use frequently. While usually windows do open in the position they were closed last, it might happen that Windows messes around with the way you organize and place applications on the desktop. That is where WindowManager comes in, providing a convenient way to create different profiles for saving and restoring the position and the size of your programs.
While things should be rather simple with WindowManager, it might take some time to get used to the application. Luckily, the user manual opens up at first launch, allowing you to have a look at detailed usage instructions.
Customizable filters, profiles and rules
The main interface enables you to manage profiles and rules. A list of all the opened windows is displayed, along with secondary windows or dialogs, if any. The rules feature various matching filters, such as the window title and class, the program executable, the window size, and more.
WindowManager can be configured to remember the last position and size of the selected window, but you can also configure new desktop coordinates and values for the width and height. In other words, it is possible to change the state of the selected window and force WindowManager to restore it in the future, all by pressing a hotkey. The order of the windows can also be tampered with.
Define custom advanced commands
It is worth mentioning that advanced users can run custom commands on windows open, close, minimize, maximize and other such actions. The built-in command editor in WindowManager comes with basic predefined commands that you can insert into your instruction set with the click of a button. Detailed instructions and information about all the commands is available in the user manual so don’t hesitate to take a look to get the most out of this feature.

The purpose of WindowManager is to improve your workflow by remembering the position and size of windows on your desktop. To put it another way, it delivers a productivity tool ready to help you save your workspace and restore it when needed without having to waste time moving and resizing windows again.
