BetterDesktopTool Review

Sven Sorensen
Easily arrange Windows on your desktop with configurations
A review of BetterDesktopTool by Sven Sørensen

Better Desktop Tool is an interesting desktop enhancement tool which provides users with a different way of organizing windows similar to the way Mac OS X does.

For people used to using Mac OS X, this program provides some familiar desktop-related features on a Windows desktop PC. It provides a more familiar way of overlaying and organizing windows on the desktop and can be useful for those who often multitask with several open applications.

Better Desktop Tool provides a plethora of different customization options such as hotkeys, how to arrange windows, foreground and background windows, etc. It supports Mac-style hot corners which can be customized.

You can use the tool to arrange windows in a grid but also use the option of only showing windows on top.

In addition to above mentioned options, Better Desktop Tool also offers the ability of creating multiple virtual desktops without having non-related tasks from interfering with each other.

Better Desktop Tool runs in the system tray, so accessing it and its options is quick and simple. It is free for private use.

BetterDesktopTool features and highlights:
  • Arranges all windows in a non overlapping layout
  • Allows selection of an arbitrary window to bring it to the foreground
  • Can be applied to minimized, non-minimized and foreground application windows
  • Supports Multi-Monitor setups
  • Moves all windows away from your desktop to give you access to Desktop-Shortcuts and Sidebar-Gadgets
  • Configuration of Hot-Corners for all functions
  • Multitouch-Gesture support for Microsoft Touch Mouse, Logitech T620 Touch Mouse and Logitech T650 Touchpad
