As Phoshi mentioned, you could do this with AutoHotkey if you don't have Windows 7. In fact, someone has already made a similar script for managing windows on multiple monitors called WindowPad!
Use a pad concept to arrange windows.
Use the Numpad or your own custom
layout to move and resize a window to
fill the appropriate section of the
Though the concept is based on HiRes
Screen Splitter by JOnGliko, I wrote
WindowPad from scratch to add some
features. Those features are:
- Multiple-monitor support. It should work with any number of monitors in
- Unresizable windows are positioned correctly.
- Windows that aren't supposed to be resizable (i.e. calc) are not resized.
here are the current hotkeys:
; Move and resize windows with Win+Numpad.
; Win+Numpad1 = Fill bottom-left quarter of screen
; Win+Numpad2 = Fill bottom half of screen
; Move windows across monitors. For example:
; Win+Numpad4 places the window on the left half of the screen.
; Win+Numpad4 again moves it to the monitor to the right.
; Quick monitor switch:
; Win+Numpad5 places the window in the center of the screen.
; Win+Numpad5 again moves the window to the next monitor.
; (This works by monitor number, not necessarily left to right.)
; QUICKER Monitor Switch:
; Win+NumpadDot switches to the next monitor (1->2->3->1 etc.)
; Win+NumpadDiv moves ALL windows to monitor 2.
; Win+NumpadMult moves ALL windows to monitor 1.
; Other shortcuts:
; Win+Numpad0 toggles maximize.
; Insert (or some other key) can be used in place of "Win".
Of course, you can modify the code to your liking.
