environment: I'm on Windows, I have XP and 7, so both are interesting to me. Plan to install some Linux so that's relevant too.
problem: I have enough screen space, and maximizing a window often makes them just 'too big' for me.
Of course I can hand-size them all the way I want. But it would be convenient if I could set up a window width/height size automatically.
I imagine something like this: I press a keyboard button or a GUI button, and the window is resized to say 520x490 (would be my custom setting). Problem is I can do this with the browser via addons but not with any OS window (that is resizable).
The best would be if I could do this per app, and also provide a default for the apps I have not specified.
It doesn't have to override the maximize button and other normal buttons but if that's what it takes it's ok too. But I'd like to remain able to move meanwhile and later resize them if I want.
Is there a way to resize OS windows easily to a stored preferred width and height?
UPDATE 1: if I resize the window manually after it was set to the 'preferred size', later I should be able to resize it again to the 'preferred size' easily, without closing/reopening it.
On the other hand, position is not a requirement. If it is saved, it is better as optional.
