try this....is very, very good ... http://www.dnmw.net/aquasnap/
I guess if you want to add a bit of slowness to your system this would help. I've been using Windows since the "286" version and have had no real reason to have any of this AeroSnap stuff.
While I think it's great to have this info and instructions on how to install it and use it... Wouldn't it be quite beneficial to those of us who are not familiar with AquaSnap to be informed of what it is, what it does, and why it would be beneficial to install it. Most of the articles we see are... get rid of the crapware, get rid of the bloat, and things you can eliminate to improve your performance. Regarding AquaSnap the first thing I gag on is the term "Aero"... why do I need or want that??? Nearly everything else I've read on here gives you instructions on how to turn "Aero" off. What gives???
Do you use the Windows 7 Snap feature? Would you like to have the Snap feature available in Windows XP? Will you try AquaSnap?
Hi - this app and the standard Windows 7 Aero Snap features allow you to maximise windows by dragging them to the top of the screen OR drag to the left or right to automatically tile the window size to the right half or the left half of the screen. Good for widescreens to show two apps side by side quickly and tidily. Prior to this Windows always had the right-click on the taskbar to 'Tile' windows vertically or horozontally. Of course this was never really used in the old days of 15inch monitors and has only really become useful on the large widescreen LCD's of modern PC's.
Greg provided a link to explain what it does. I persoanlly don't sit on my computer at work and have more that two windows open at a time but if you do, then this might help you. For me, it still seems like another "bloat gadget".

I don't really use it that often. I do have occasion to have multiple windows open side by side. However, more often than not I need one larger than the other, not both the same half-screen size.
