Hi SR! I have a Win10 desktop workstation that is being used in video production environment. One of the displays/desktops attached to this machine is displaying several windows (OBS preview/live, Win10 clock applet, time.is, etc) and is facing away from the desktop user. I can "painstakingly" manually arrange windows on this display by running VNC to myself (shudder) and moving and shaping windows with the mouse. I need to do this anytime the applications with those windows are closed and reopened, rebooted, etc. It would be fantastic if I had a tool that could note the coordinates and shape of several windows/applications/window classes and just reposition/reshape them at the click of a button!
- Budget: low
- Speed and efficiency is key here. I should be able to "recall" this layout at the click of the proverbial button. However, I'm willing to spend time with any complexities in the first initial setup.
- It needs to "remember" the layout details of these applications. It should be tracking them by process name or maybe even window title (never PID)
- It would be nice if it could record Z order too, as my preference is to allow certain amounts of overlap. (this may discount some simple "tiler" apps out there.
- The program should be not overly "flaky" or "clumsy". The machine its running on is juggling a fair amount of video data, in realtime, in a live environment...
And yes win+left is a thing and no, those 1/2, 1/4 proportions are no good (no one can see what they need to at a distance). It "seems" (like everything) so simple. I almost attempted this with AutoIt, but I'm sure someone else invented this wheel.... right?
