Windows only: Tiny portable utility NiftyWindows adds a ton of features that make working with windows easy—so you can move, resize, and even roll up windows without moving your hand off the mouse. Once you've launched the no-install-required utility, simply right-click on a window and drag to either move or resize the window—dragging the corner will resize that corner, and dragging from the middle will move the whole window. You can roll up the window by holding down the right mouse button over the title bar and pressing the left mouse button—do the same thing over the window area and it will minimise. Middle-click the titlebar to maximise the window, or use the scroll wheel while holding down the right mouse button to navigate through the regular Alt-Tab window switcher—a very useful feature once you get used to it. The only issue in our testing appears to be a slight incompatibility with Firefox and the middle mouse button shortcuts, but you can disable them under the Mouse Hooks menu. NiftyWindows is free and open-source, available for Windows only. If you just want to roll up windows, check out previously mentioned WinRoll, or take a look at our top 10 ways to trick out your desktop. Thanks, cfusion!
