    Gridy adds an invisible grid to Windows, so that any window you move or resize is snapped to it.

    Snapping is enabled with mouse drag or keyboard arrow keys.

    Gridy also lets you store and restore a window' s size and position in up to 9 slots. This is useful for quickly arranging your windows in a convenient way.

    In addition, you can apply these changes to any window or dialog:
    • Make window semi-transparent
    • Hide the window' s Alt-Tab icon
    • Set window to be Always on Top
    • Resize to a predefined size of your choice
    • Minimize all windows but the active one

    Getting Started
    After installing Gridy, right click its icon in the system tray to access some configuration options.
    You may also double click the system tray to see the Help screen with all of the available actions.

    For example, while a restored window (not maximized) is in focus, press and hold the Win key and press the arrow keys to move the window in fixed intervals.
    The same snapping effect can also be achieved by simply moving or resizing the window.



    Technical Notes
    Gridy is built as a single executable + a configuration file.
    The configuration file is a simple INI file that can be edited either manually or by using the system tray menu.

    By itself, Gridy does not write anything to the registry and is completely portable.

    If you are using the installer to install Gridy on your system, it will simply copy its files to your chosen directory, add a start menu item and register itself in the Add/Remove Programs registry.
