Update: 1/10/21. windy is now beta2, and has moved to codeplex : projectwindy.codeplex.com
Windy is Divvy for Windows platform.
A lot searches later, I found that there was no real divvy (MAC) alternative for windows. So, 2 days later i have this, which is exactly divvy – but for windows. What is Windy? Since the idea is from Divvy, it is only fair to use a similar tone – Managing windows on Windows can be frustrating, requiring precision control of your mouse or trackpad for clicking, dragging, pushing and pulling your windows to the size and position you desire. Even with all this work, it’s very difficult to get windows exactly where you want them, so most of the time windows are left scattered all over the screen. The solution? Windy.
Windy is an entirely new way of managing your workspace, originally created by divvy for MAC.It allows you to quickly and efficiently “Windy up” your screen into exact portions.
With the Windy interface it’s as simple as a single click and drag in the Windy interface and your window will be resized and moved to a relative portion of the screen. If that seems like too much work, you can go ahead and create as many different shortcuts as you’d like that resize and move your windows.
Windy is designed to be quick, simple and elegant.
