Hey all!
I would like to know if there's a way of limiting the size of the maximized windows on my computer (so that they're maximized, but don't take all the screen. I like a little border with nothing. :)
Thanks

It can't.

That's why it's called MAXIMIZE, it takes the whole screen.

There's a way of doing it.... I've seen it.
There are some programs I used for XP (can't remember the name of such :'()
If you don't know... just don't answer.

Yes, I think the Acer one will work, Let me test it!
:)
Thanks!

Edit:
Unfortunately not working. It doesn't allow to use custom resolutions.
I found the one that allowed me to do it. It's WindowFX

I'm researching for a Vista/7 alternative
:)

I remember using Windows 3.1 and using Macromedia Action 2.5 [it's like Powerpoint?] and it would maximize the entire screen, except for a portion of the bottom [so that way you could access your minimized icons like Program Manager real easily. This was like the taskbar in a way.

So when I used it on Windows 95 on, it did the same thing when I minimized, except there would always be a gap between the taskbar and the window between the Desktop.

I thought I would share this as was a huge feature with the program if I recall. haha
