Windows "Expose" w/ "Mission Control" like piles
There is a rewritten & licensed version of this program now available for Windows 8 at http://www.EmceeSoftware.net.
In addition to the improved features you'd expect in a commercial version -- InstallShield installation, dialog-based settings editor, more customization, including changing the hot key, mouse activation, "spreading out" thumbnails in a pile, etc. -- the big improvement is that the W8 program fully integrates management of desktop windows and management of Windows 8's new "Metro" apps.
EmceeSoftware.net also has a Windows 7 version available for download, and it has the same functionality as the Windows 8 version but without any support for the Windows 8 apps, so not much different than the version here.
The software on EmceeSoftware.net can be downloaded with a free two-week trial license if you want to take a look at it.
We're trying to figure out how, and when, to make the commercial version open source.
- Version 2 Beta
One fatal flaw. CTRL-TAB is bound to this, without any noticeable way to change it. CTR-TAB is a STANDARD shortcut, used on windows applications to switch between the windows of the application. Until the author gives a way to change the shortcut, this is useless.
I really love it, almost perfect. Is there a way to change the shortcut ctrl+tab? I can't figure it out. Besides that its awesome.
mcsoft works perfectly, thanks
if this smart stuff can separate different windows of Excel files, it will be perfect.
works pretty good... well done team! 2 things would make it perfect for now: 1. make it start faster... even though I'm starting mc.exe using the "-resident" argument at startup, it's still starting slow when I activate it with Hot Corners 2 for example or even from a pinned shortcut from the taskbar. I don't have a slow system (Dual Xeon Workstation). It would be perfect if this delay could be setup from the mc.cfg file. 2. fix the maximized window bug. If I have a maximized window active and I use Mc.exe to switch to another normal window of a different app, and I want to get back at the maximized window, every time I do this, the maximized window becomes smaller and smaller, and it's borders starts showing up. I'm using a dual-monitor setup btw. Hope you can do something about these 2 things. Waiting for the next update!
