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.

    If you want to compile this project, go to the discussion section, you'll find the missing resource.h file and some hints on compiling. I honnestly didn't get the chance to compile the code because I tried Emcee7 which is basically the same codebase but supposedly further developed and improved and I hate it with a passion. It was buuuuuggyyyy and saaad and they want money for it. I cannot imagine it's smaller and more neglected OS brother fairing much better than the paid version. Do yourselves a favor and go with smallwindows. It's got it's flaws but it's way more reliable and it doesn't need desktop compositing to work to boot, so if your gaming and running Windows basic mode or if you're running Win7 in a virtualmachine, you won't loose it's functionality. smallwindows also have binaries you can try out on virtual machine to see if you like or not before you compile it.

    No support, missing resource.h, no project file. Don't bother.

    Very usefull application. However it does not work well with multiple monitors. Specifically, in my Windows 7 PC that has two monitors, the Windows 7 version of the program, does not show all windows/piles of the second monitor, maybe of the first too (I don't remember exactly). Can you fix this please?
