Productivity gains and staying organized is why I run dedicated window management apps on my PC and Mac. Sure, Windows has an excellent system-wide window splitting feature, and macOS has a great full-screen mode. But, for a single ultra-wide 34" monitor with a 21:9 aspect ratio, I need more personalization options. This way, I can have three apps or browser windows open side-by-side and keep them neatly organized. I also run multiple desktops in Windows 10 and multiple spaces in Mac OS for specific tasks:
1. Browsing: three Chrome windows, or Chrome + Firefox + Edge.
2. Photo Editing: Lightroom in a full-screen mode.
3. Writing: Browser window and Grammarly.
4. Communication and Music: Slack, Email, and Spotify.
For Windows 10, I'm using a SnapIt app. I tried it for a week and liked it, so I bought the full version for $4.99. I found it to be easy to get started but powerful enough to customize exactly how I like it.
For MacOS, I'm using a Divvy app. I bought it for $13.99 four years, and it gets the job done. Simple to use and customize, but the interface looks dated.
What Window Management apps have you been using, for Windows or macOS, and what do you like about them?
