    This is the only thing missing from MacOS by default, especially as the tile option that's built-in isn't very good. There are tools in the App Store that 'restore' this functionality, BetterSnapTool is one I use and costs $2.99. There's a free app that appears to do the same thing, Rectangle, though I haven't tried it since I already have an App that does it.
  • Anything like Rectangle (macOS app) for window management? | 2021-10-05
    Been struggling to find anything like, is there anything for Windows that allows me to shift or move windows based on keyboard shortcuts? A lot seem to be mouse driven, but I prefer never to need my hands leave the keyboard.
  • Keep a window "on top" M1 Mac. | 2021-10-05
    Hi! Apart from Afloat (which is not updated for a while now) there's an app called Rectangle. Although it doesn't keep windows on top of other windows - it's a great tool to organize or "snap" your apps through keyboard shortcuts.

  • Hi everyone! Could u please suggest a laptop for software engineering/dev. (programming) ?
    Pros: - Any applications you install (IDE’s, notepad++, etc.), make sure you install the portable version, works perfectly fine for basic use and smaller compression for Fixed Storage devices (Mine Mac storage is 256gb, after a year of just coding only 75gb used with +15 applications). Apps extensions to make your Mac fee like a Windows Computer: 1) Rectangle,, allows you to drag you Applications and attach them to Full a screen, Left or Right of screen, as a window snap tool. And 2) Alt-Tab,, allows you to view Open Tabs and what’s displayed on them similar to Windows. Instead of Cmd + Tab to toggle between open apps, you use Option + Tab. - both apps work amazing and really allows my Mac to use my absolute favorite features on Windows.
  • Hookshot vs Better Snap Tool | 2021-09-28
  • Can someone please help me understand why folks feel MacOS is better for for productivity over Windows 10? I've given it a good faith effort and I'm not seeing it. I am interested in a genuine discussion, not a flame war. | 2021-09-28
    I've had the same issue with MacOS when I've switched to it. Window snapping plays a huge role in my workflow, you might want to give Rectangle a try, for me it gets the job done. | 2021-09-26
    However, there are free apps that nobody in their right mind would try to crush that apply the same management, like rectangle.
  • Switching from pc laptops to an m1 pro 16gb/512ssd. Any tips?.
    Windows management on macOS is quite limited compared to Windows, I would recommend downloading Rectangle for a similar experience or an alternative.
