Thought this was interesting and that I'd give it a spin. Double clicking produces a momentary icon present in the menu bar but then nothing... ?? MBP 10.6.8

@dev, so how's the multi monitor support coming from your reply back on Jan 28, 2014?

Can I drag a window to the side of the screen and have it "tucked"?

And one more thing: could you have a preference where we can set how much of the tucked window is shown? I'd love to see just a couple more pixels of the tucked windows, so I have an idea of which apps they are..

We use the "drag to edge" feature as a trigger for Cinch, so we didn't want to clash by adding the same thing to Tuck.

Instead, checkout the Swipe feature in Tuck: http://d.pr/bFFM

For your second question, yes, we have a hidden setting in Tuck that will control how much of the window is left showing: http://d.pr/n/KEVS

I love it in Mavericks. Works with a chat window perfectly. I'm even able to enter text and exchange chats while the window is untucked and then I simply move my mouse away and it "tucks" back out of sight again except a tiny edge. Looking forward to tabs as an option in the future although I hope it doesn't become mandatory for all the windows. For example, I don't need a tab for that chat window. My only real complaint is the Swipe feature requires too fast of a swipe for me. I'd prefer the swipe to be able to be slower -- or better yet allow me to adjust it myself to my own preference. Seems stable and handles moving to other Spaces just fine. The developer currently has it pop out a little each time as a reminder it's there, but I think we'll be able to remove that feature with an upcoming update if we want and I'll like that. Also, labels will take care of that issue for some as well. This has a lot of potential to be a huge time saver for those who don't want some unstable bloatware added to their system, but want to organize windows and reduce clutter. I only took off one star for the too-fast-swipe business.

Tuck crashed today. When I meant to save something in TextEdit, I accidentally tried to save a Chrome window that had a chat running within it. I cancelled the save window and Tuck immediately crashed and left my little Chrome chat window stranded.

I have Default Folder running, so I don't know if it had anything to do with that or not. I would have sent the crash report, but Tuck didn't allow me to peruse the crash report first so I cancelled it.

You might shoot us an email so we can discuss the swipe feature further. Also, I have a hidden option to disable the "pop" when changing Spaces.

I used it today and I love this app. I love that the window stays on top and moves out of the way. Perfect for reference windows or a todo list. I tried the trackpad gestures and couldn't quite get the hang of it. Anyhow, I'm in.

has some potential and a lot of market as it is the only tool of this type that works with 10.9.. there is definitely a need for an app like this that can solve the window clutter issue.. developers please take a look at sticky windows from donelleschi .. http://www.donelleschi.com/stickywindows/ it was discontinued long ago but it was really promising.. you should copy that workflow which is better then the one you have.. in sticky windows you can easily identify the minimized app.. with this one however, the window gets too lost and it disappears when the mouse is away.. one should tuck by dragging the window to the edge and untuck by clicking on the tab.. tucking should be a user decision and not mouse away decision...

Thank you for the feedback. I plan on adding Tabs as an option, but it might not be in 1.0.

I think sometimes I'd want to have tabs and other times not. I hope it will be optional. But, yeah, tabs with labels would make a lot of sense as an option at least.

Very interesting little tool. Sadly doesn't work for me as I have multiple monitors and with 4 displays it just goes to another display vs actually hiding away on the display I'm on as I'd hoped.

Yep, multi-monitor support has been a bit spotty in Tuck. It's a hard problem to solve, but we're looked at it.

I'm just curious of people have found and made use of the Swipe feature to Tuck windows (https://vimeo.com/73894710).

It's been very spotty on 10.9.5. Mostly doesn't work then after a few tries will work. Thought maybe it was a keyboard shortcut conflict so I changed the modifier, but it was just as spotty.

edit: I think I found the problem... I have to swipe very fast or it doesn't work. Personally, I think the swipe speed requirement should lean a bit slower or better yet have that be an option for the user to adjust.

If I could just have those small haxie windows from Unsanity again, my life would be complete. A lot of visual types like me, which includes writers, need to see the window …rather than have it minimized to dock—out of sight, out of mind. Wonder if this comes near to that function.

Tuck's probably not what you're looking for. You might checkout Deskovery instead for the "window shade" trick.

I'm a bit late to this party, but Windomizer will do what you want. It's in MU.

I prefer the simplicity of Tuck. Glad it's available.

Interesting start. One thing I noticed is that if you use Spaces the tucked windows pop out a bit whenever you change screens.

This is by design to let you know where windows are tucked. Currently there's a hidden option to disable this feature which will hopefully make its way into the Preferences in Tuck 1.1.

Thanks al lot! I have been waiting for this since system 9. back than it was possible to drag a window to a edge of a screen and it was reduced to some label.

I hope to have the same "drag to edge to make a label" feature in Tuck before it releases. Stay tuned.
