A small add-on called AltDrag modified Windows' built-in mouse behavior. It's declared objective is to enable you to resize and move your windows in novel ways.

Altdrag is a simple-to-use program created to assist you when doing a very routine task: dragging and resizing windows. Although you can configure it to launch when Windows starts, it is not necessary to install it.

With Altdrag, you can modify how you drag windows around the screen. To move a window while it is open, just hold down the Alt key while clicking on the desired area of the window and then dragging it to the desired location. Because it can occasionally be challenging to click on the tiny title bar, this feature is especially helpful on laptops with small screens. The window's size can be altered by clicking the right mouse button.

A small add-on called AltDrag modifies Windows' built-in mouse behavior. Its declared objective is to enable you to resize and move your windows in novel ways. But it accomplishes much more than that.

You'll have access to features with AltDrag that are often only available on platforms running Linux or other comparable operating systems. The main purpose of AltDrag is straightforward: while holding down the Alt key, you may click and drag to move and arrange the open windows.
Similar to installing any other Windows program, using AltDrag is free. AltDrag setup simply requires a small number of extra steps. These have to do with changing your keyboard settings so that AltDrag won't be interfered with.

Features:

  • While holding the Alt key, drag a window to the side or corners of your screen. This will start the Aero Snap feature. 
  • Use the right or center mouse button to resize your windows while holding Alt down.
  • Press the Ctrl key while dragging a window while holding down Alt to rapidly make it the active window.
  • If you're using two or more monitors, you can also use the CTRL key to limit your operations to that monitor.
  • To instantly maximize or reduce a window, hold Alt and double-click.
