ShiftWindow is a free window resizing and shifting software for Windows which you can use to resize and reposition application windows using keyboard hotkeys.

Each application will have it’s own rule and they are gonna be detected by either window titles, or by selecting the executable of the application. With the help of rules you can reposition and resize windows by setting the location and new window size in pixels.

Rules can be managed in the left sidebar. New and Delete buttons down below will either add or remove window resizing and relocation rules from the list. The entire right side of the interface is for editing rules. Everything can be setup there, window name or executable name which is gonna be affected by this rule, values in pixels for the location and new window size, hotkey triggers and so on.

  • Detects windows either by their names or using names of the executables

  • Keyboard hotkeys – setup rules can be executed using keyboard shortcuts
  • Timed delay – rules can be setup so that they are executed with delay
  • Fullscreen resizing – changes window size so it fills the entire monitor

Most of us have applications which we are using each day, and we’ve grown accustomed to having them arranged in a specific way on the monitor or monitors if you have several of them. Manual resizing and repositioning is time consuming, especially if you’re using a lot of applications. ShiftWindow also works with multiple monitors, you can for example set up an application so that using hotkey triggers it opens up in fullscreen on a completely different monitor.

Target monitor option allows you to set a different monitor where it’s gonna open up in fullscreen mode.

ShiftWindow working

Window that we have setup really was resized and relocated to the location that we’ve have setup. For more easier setup, you can use the Grab button, so that ShiftWindow uses current location and size values of the select window. It saves you the trouble of having to type them manually. Every time that the window moves you can easily return it using the hotkey which you’ve configured for that rule.
