WindowShade X provides an exciting and useful way of organizing your work on Mac OS X. With this handy tool, you can assign the following actions to the minimize button and a double-click on the window title:
  • Minimize the window to the Dock, like always;
  • "Windowshade" the window into a tiny strip to quickly peek below or get it out of the way;
  • Minimize-In-Place the window so it becomes really small so you can move it out of the way yet still see what is going on;
  • Make the window transparent so you can continue working in it while seeing things under it;
  • Make window float on top;
  • Hide the application quickly;
  • Do nothing and ignore the action (sometimes it is quite useful as well).

What's New

Version 5.0.7:
  • You may have to restart after installing WSX for the first time.
  • Addresses many parent-child relationship problems.
  • If a window is minimized (collapsed) and it suddenly gets a child window, the window will expand automatically. For example, collapse Safari then press Command L (to go to the location bar). Safari will expand itself.
  • No longer attempts to make a child float on top.
  • Lots of other parent-child relationship fixes.
  • Removed some spurious logging errors when EyeTV's setup assistant was closed.

Requirements

  • Mac OS X 10.6 or later
  • Rosetta.
