Get the "Aero Snap" and "Aero Shake" features of Windows 7 on XP and Vista
is a lightweight tool designed to assist you work more efficient when dealing with multiple application windows, in the sense that it automatically resizes and snaps them to the margins and corners of your display.
It comes as just one product inspired from the Aero Snap and Aero Shake features of Windows 7, though AquaSnap
is also compatible with Windows XP and Vista.
The application is quite simple to use even if you are not familiar with all these features and the way they work. It shows a comprehensive, tabbed window interface, each tab corresponding to a particular feature of the application.
gives users fine tuning control to modify the Snap/Shake/Glass functionality, customize the Aqua features, toggle at will between Aero and Aqua, or disable them. Where Aero Snap makes windows resize as maximized or to half the width of the monitor, AquaSnap
adds in quarter-display sizes. There is also a custom option, and it is multi monitor compatible. For some strange reason, the Snap features required a reboot before they worked, when the Shake and Peek ones did not.
AquaShake changes Aero Shake from minimizing all other windows to making them transparent. Users can toggle the transparency degree and the shake sensitivity. AquaGlass actually does not alter or improve on Aero Glass. On the contrary, it makes windows transparent when you drag them around the monitor. You can adjust the transparency here, too, but this is most useful when you click and hold on a window to instantly see what is beneath it.
, you have a feature called AeroShake which hides windows if you shake them. Another feature is resizing of individual windows based on the corner of the display you drag it.
When not configured, the application can run from the system tray and a simple on/off switch can toggle all its settings on and off.
is definitely a helpful tool designed to ease the way we browse our computer, transfer files and optimize the usage of several other programs.
Download and install AquaSnap
