Modify the position and dimensions for windows in the "Maximized" state
Posted on 2015-02-08
Is there a way to change the maximize dimensions in Windows (7)?
As far as I know, there are three automatic screen-position settings for any given window:
I'm wondering if there is a way to modify the position & dimensions for a window when the Maximize button is clicked (or when the title bar is double-clicked).
For example, the monitor I'm currently using measures 1920 x 1200 pixels (20" x 12.5") and therefore, when maximized, a window takes on those same dimensions. But suppose you want to modify the "maximize" effect so the window, in its maximized position, measures 16" x 12.5" so the far right 4" of the screen are open.
I know that some programs like MS OneNote cause this behavior (for instance, if the OneNote window is positioned in a certain way at the right end of the screen, maximizing another window will extend it right up to the edge of OneNote but not much), but is there a way to manipulate the maximize position via user input?
