Like a good Linux window manager, allSnap allows Windows' applications to snap to the main screen area or to one-another.

That is, when dragging or resizing a window, it will try to cling to a nearby window. This makes it easier and faster to adjust windows "just right".

  • Works on 32 and 64-bit Windows.
  • Run both the 32 bit and 64 bit versions to cover all applications.
  • As of 2016-02-11, it hasn't been updated since 2010-07. (source)
