What is BetterSnapTool?
In short, it is a tool for resizing and positioning windows.
One of the most awkward things with MacOS is how it handles resizing and positioning of windows, especially on a multi-monitor setup. The solution to this frustration is BetterSnapTool.
How I use BetterSnapTool.
I actually only use BetterSnapTool to do these 5 things.
Adjust current window to take left half of screen.
Shortcut: Ctrl + option + cmd + left arrow to move a window
Adjust current window to take right half of screen.
Shortcut: Ctrl + option + cmd + right arrow
Maximize current window
Shortcut: Ctrl + option + cmd + up arrow
Move current window to next monitor, maximized:
Shortcut: option + `
Snap a window to Top Left, Top Right, Bottom Left, Bottom Right
Previously I had keyboard shortcuts for this, but it was a bit too much. Mouse/trackpad works just fine for these, as they are not used as often as the above mentioned. You simply drag a window to a corner and it will resize it and position it correctly.
That’s it! It might not seem much, but I use it a lot!
It’s $3.99. Probably best buy ever under $5.
Get it here. Enjoy. 🙂
