Snap Windows together - gHacks Tech News

Snap Windows together

If you ever have used Winamp you might have noticed how the different windows of Winamp snap when you move them close to each other. The windows are independent of each other but if you move, lets say the playlist window, near the main window it will connect to it automatically. All Snap adds this feature to all windows in your Microsoft operating system. It works with every version of Windows starting with Windows 9x including Windows Vista. There is even an experimental 64-bit version available.

There is however one difference between the Winamp snap function and the one from All Snap. If windows are connected in Winamp you can move all at the same time no matter where you click. This feature is not available in All Snap. You can only snap windows next to each other but once you move one window the other stays in place.

Not all windows can be snapped to as well, for example windows who use their own custom way of moving and resizing plus several system windows like Office 2007. You can still snap windows to those windows though.

All Snap is a pretty unique application and works pretty well although it does have some limitations.

Update: The developer homepage has moved to a new domain, the original web link has been updated. The program has been updated since the first review. The developer has for instance added support for Microsoft's latest operating system Windows 7. Another change is that the 64-bit version is no longer experimental, the program should work fine under both 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows.

A short video demonstration has been created that shows the program in action.

It gives you a quick overview of the program's functionality. While not explicitly mentioned, All Snap works fine under Windows 8 as well (the desktop part of it).
