Actual Title Buttons

  • Generic Company Place Holder Actual Title Buttons

Do you find yourself constantly hunting through open windows or clicking icons in your title bar to find what you're working on? Or maybe you use a laptop with a tiny screen, and it's just getting too crowded for comfort. Actual Title Buttons is designed for situations like these.

This helpful utility adds six title bar buttons next to Windows' standard Minimize, Full Screen, and Close. The dot button minimizes a window to the task bar; the horizontal line causes only the window's title bar to display; the stick pin forces the window to remain on top; the checkerboard makes the window 20% transparent; and the double down arrow gives you quick access to other functions such as Send to Bottom, Resize, Priority, and more. Click the little wrench to access the Actual Title Buttons interface and fine-tune your settings.

Windows users who want more ways to swap between windows and control their functions should give this 60-day trial a spin. If you really love the program, you might want to try the company's full suite, Actual Window Manager.
