Windows 7 has the new Snap feature: the process of pushing a window against the side of the screen (or using a new hotkey) to snap it onto part of the screen space (this also allows for easy side-by-side comparison if snapping two windows: one to the left side of the screen and the other to the right).

Can this snap effect be done in Vista/XP with a modification of some kind?

For reference, a video of the Windows 7 snap effects are seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzQQcdw1qmY&

Indeed that software implements the Windows 7 snap features on Windows XP/Vista. Works great. Thanks for the info! – John K Nov 15 '10 at 2:50
