Actual Window Manager Comments

Ultimate Windows Assistant

Positive Comment by realnabarl
about Actual Window Manager and DM2, Listary Dec 2014

Windows needs something to enhance its experience, so there're many related softwares around. Actual Window Manager is the ultimate tool IMO, both the number of the features and the quality are good. It's a decent plan to buy this instead of using a bunch of other softwares even they are free. For window managing Small DM2 iconDM2 is also very powerful but it lacks updates but this do. I also like finding path through the caption button, it looks more intergrate than Small Listary iconListary's menu, but cannot handle all the windows yet like flash open file window from a browser (what Listary can do).
