AeroSnap gives XP/Vista users the Aero Snap capabilities of Windows 7, allowing you to 'snap' windows to the top or sides of your screen or minimize or maximize them in just a click.
If you've decided against Windows 7 but nonetheless covet some of its cooler features, you're going to like the free application AeroSnap. It's controlled using hotkeys and the mouse. There are also a small number of configuration options - you can set snapping specifications for AeroSnap, as well as whether or not it starts automatically with Windows.
That's all there is to AeroSnap - a simple tool to perform one specific function. For such a small app, however, it's pretty heavy on resources and it takes a while to get the hang of the snapping action. Even so, it does its job well, and if you've been craving some AeroSnap functionality, this is the program for you.
Enjoy all the fun of Windows 7 Aero Snap on XP and Vista!
Simple but functional idea
Easy to use
Hard to get the hang of snapping
Heavy on resources
"worked great -used 22 MB of memory"
It depends on how much you want to use the snap feature. Works great - I think 22 MB is worth it, given that most laptops come with much more marginal functionality (which most of us turn off) at a higher memory cost. I think of DropBox which, on my machine takes 50-60 MB of memory, etc.
I'm one of those people who is used to closing all but two windows and then using the command "Tile Windows Vertically" available from right clicking in the task bar area. This is *much* easier!!
depends on how you view the memory cost. try it and see if you become addicted to the feature. if not, I'd turn it off (which you can do as a default - just set it not to automatically start up with windows.
