  • GlazeWM

    A tiling window manager for Windows inspired by i3 and Polybar.

    Check out Glaze WM. It's similar to i3, and comes with its own polybar-like bar (although from what I've seen so far, it's a less customizable). As for a rofi replacement, I use PowerToys' PowerToys Run (link).

  • AltSnap

    Maintained continuation of Stefan Sundin's AltDrag

    Coming from Linux, in case you miss the option to drag a window using the Alt-Key and the cursor placed anywhere on it (and not only the title bar), check out AltSnap. It's a maintained fork of the original AltDrag.
