How to Divide Your computer screen into regions with “MaxTo” and go multi tasking!

You are surfing the web on your browser Capture_008and need to copy some content to your word file running in the background! How will you do it? Most people will go switching between the two soft wares by clicking in the taskbar. That’s such a pain to work out if you have a long assignment waiting to be finished and most part of it need you to work simultaneously on multiple applications. Wouldn’t it be great if you could divide the screen into two or more regions for you to keep your eyes on, at the same time? and in-fact to interoperate amongst multiple apps? Yes, it sound pretty cool and productive! all you need is a good screen size ( though it works on smaller monitors too, but for some, it may seem chaotic and all-messed-up!). The application is name MaxTo and according to the developer’s website,

“ MaxTo is a small Windows program that divides your monitor into regions. When you maximize a window, it will no longer fit the entire screen, but only the region it was maximized into. Your windows are neatly organized into the grid you have defined when they are maximized. MaxTo has been described as a tiling window manager. ”

Capture_007MaxTo is a very light-weight application which works on both 64-bit and 32-bit ver sions of Windows XP and Windows Vista. The .NET framework version 2.0 or higher is required for it. if you need full  screen space to work in an application, a simple shortcut of holding the shift key will disable it.

When you double click its icon in your system tray, it will display a screen to drag handles and divide the screen as you desire.its that simple. it has a multi monitor support and the best thing?? yes…it’s available Free for Download! Grab this tool and get more productive at work!download icon
