Use Moom to easily control windows using keyboard and cursor
Apple likes to keep things simple where window controls are concerned, which is why you don’t get very many of them. You can minimise a window to the Dock by clicking the yellow button or by using the keyboard shortcut ç+M. In Yosemite, you can switch to full-screen mode with the green button, or (usually) press ≈+ç+F. Beyond this, you’re on your own. Which is perhaps fine if you live in full-screen mode, but not if you spend far too much time attempting to manage a mess of windows on your screen.
Moom ($10 – about £6, many tricks.com) powers up window management on the Mac. In many ways it’s overkill, with an almost absurd number of options. But that’s part of why we like it: no matter how you want to control your windows, there are settings that feel tailor-made for you.
In this walkthrough, you’ll learn how to use the pointer to quickly snap windows to edges of the screen or to match selected segments on a grid. You’ll also discover how Moom enables granular window control without taking your fingers off the keyboard.
The trial version is good for 100 uses, and we highly recommend trying it. Craig Grannell
