Snap and Resize Window in Windows 7 with Gridy

We all know the cool features of Windows 7, called Aero Snap feature, we can snap a window to right/left or maximize by dragging the window to top of your screen.

Now, Lets take Windows 7 Aero snapping to a next level using Gridy Tool.
With Gridy we can snap,resize or shrink a window just by dragging a window to a grid location on desktop where you wanted, or by using arrow keys on your keyboard.

Gridy Shortcut Keys

I use this tool when I want to resize my Windows Explorer or Firefox Browser window the same size to all my browsers window size, like Google Chrome or Internet Explorer 9, because I don’t use full screen mode and Gridy make window resizing, snapping feature is very handy.

How it Works

Gridy adds an invisible grid to Windows, so that any window you move or resize is snapped to it.
Snapping is enabled with mouse drag or keyboard arrow keys.
Gridy also lets you store and restore a window’s size and position in up to 9 slots. This is useful for quickly arranging your windows in a convenient way.

Gridy Windows Snapping Features

In addition, you can apply these changes to any window or dialog:

  • Make window semi-transparent
  • Hide the window’s Alt-Tab icon
  • Set window to be Always on Top
  • Resize to a predefined size of your choice
  • Minimize all windows but the active one

I recommend this tool to those who uses Windows 7 and even XP and Vista when you are working in your PC in window mode, even your Open/Save dialogue boxes can be snapped and resized with Gridy.
