  • Apple has not fixed the macOS audio left/right balance bug for 10 years
    Most of the time, I don’t. It sounds silly but macOS window management works best when you don’t micromanage and just let windows pile up at whichever size fits their content, kind of like papers on a desk. Instead I group windows by virtual desktop (space) on two monitors, switching out virtual desktops to mix and match sets of windows. Individual windows are rarely moved or resized. On the odd occasion I need... - Source: Hacker News / 2 months ago
  • Yabai – A tiling window manager for macOS
    I similarly find something like Yabai a bit too heavy-handed for my needs, and instead prefer Moom[0]. I find that only need tiling occasionally, and for that Moom excels since it doesn’t add any new key shortcuts to memorize and is only ever visibly present when hovering your cursor over a window’s green button. Its Aero Snap equivalent is optional and turned off by default too, which is great for me (I trigger... - Source: Hacker News / 5 months ago
  • Rethinking Window Management in Gnome
    I ended up using Moom [1] to work around some of the oddities of macOS window management. It's relatively low-feature, mostly for window arrangements and sizing. I use it on a vertical monitor to split window placement horizontally, since macOS can only natively do vertical splits. It has other features too (like saving layouts and keyboard shortcuts), but I don't use them that much. 1. https://manytricks.com/moom/. - Source: Hacker News / 9 months ago
  • Any alternatives to Sizer4 for Mac? (Resizing a window to a specific size like 1024x768)
    Moom by Many Tricks (https://manytricks.com/moom/). Source: 10 months ago
  • MOOM doesn't work with Vivaldi
    I've got question tho, I'm using MOOM (https://manytricks.com/moom/) to help me organize application window. But somehow, it doesn't work on Vivaldi window. Source: 10 months ago
  • Ask HN: Why does Apple refuse to add window snapping to macOS?
    I started with rectangle but now prefer moom. https://manytricks.com/moom/ It integrates in the way I would expect the native feature to work: hover the green button for a snapping palette. - Source: Hacker News / 10 months ago
  • Any macOS screensavers to show Homekit cameras?
    As far as the "windows resetting constantly" issue goes, there are a few dozen utilities out there that can help with that. My current favorite for the same task on my own desktops server is Moom: https://manytricks.com/moom/. Source: 11 months ago
  • Resize MacBook Pro screen area -
    You can try Moom: https://manytricks.com/moom/. Source: 11 months ago
  • Just got a new M2 Pro after my 2016 became outdated. What are your first steps to setting up a new computer?
    Install Moom (window snapping that’s not nearly as obtrusive as most Aero Snap style alternatives). Source: 12 months ago
  • MacOS/Apple Rant
    NB: Quite a lot of people who are from a more Windows-orientated background, as well as many die-hard macOS users, use additional window management add-ons such as https://rectangleapp.com. I prefer Moom myself, but it's payware while Rectangle is free & open source. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Mac Studio on order - looking for a monitor
    I've got a Samsung 49" Odyssey G9 ( https://www.samsung.com/nz/monitors/gaming/odyssey-g9-dqhd-monitor-with-1000r-curved-display-49-inch-lc49g95tssexxy/ ) and its great... I can have Photoshop open in the middle, Youtube to the left and my email to the right and it works great. Two must-haves with it are: Moom software ( https://manytricks.com/moom/ ) to snap your app windows as MacOS doesn't really do it very... Source: about 1 year ago
  • How to configure apps to open in a certain 'way' on macOS?
    Take a look at Bunch. It, with other tools such as a window manager like Moom, will allow you to do this. Source: about 1 year ago
  • looking for a solution for keeping windows placed in different spaces on dual monitors
    I use Moom for other window management. It is not clear if Moom has the exact feature you are looking for, the automatic window positioning upon app launch (which is why I use Stay as well). Source: about 1 year ago
  • Makers, what are the tools you can't live without?
    Https://manytricks.com/moom/ There are many other window managers, but this is still one of the best (hint: shortcuts again). Source: about 1 year ago
  • Alternative to "Stay" app, which remembers windows positions when docking/undocking
    Moom, per its website, has similar functionality. I use Moom for other window management and it works well for me. Once Stay stops working I'll no doubt switch. But as of yet I've not tried to use the monitor add/subtract features of Moom. Source: about 1 year ago
  • MacOS window management
    Moom, by Many Tricks may do what you want. I use Moom for other window management tasks and recommend it without reservation. There is a free trial. But I don't know if it does automatic window placement. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Keeping apps and windows remembered in multiple spaces & multiple screens
    Moom, by Many Tricks has this functionality, although I have not used it. I do use Moom for other window management tasks and recommend it without reservation. There is a free trial. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Pls recommend a window manager that suits my specific need
    I think it remembers window titles (e.g. Finder window where a folder with name "photos" is opened). But it won't open browser tabs for you, or do anything with the tabs. Best thing to do is to check it out. They have a trial version: https://manytricks.com/moom/. Source: over 1 year ago
  • does anyone know how to horizontally and vertically split windows into 3 on mac?
    Check out Moom app for all applications’ windows. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Should I upragade to Ventura MacOS?
    I had the same dual monitor problem with Monterey, both with my Studio and with my MBP. It drove me crazy until I searched for and found a workaround, via the app Moom. It allows me to save window layouts and call them up instantly via a hot key. There are other apps that do the same thing, but Moom works great, and I'm looking no further. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Most of these have become essential to me at this point. What are some of your favorites?
    Moom which I think is similar to Magnet is a very simple but powerful way to control window arrangement. It's method for creating custom regions is very clever. Source: over 1 year ago

Best 6 Mac Window Managers
Although it’s the default way of controlling Moom, you can operate this Mac window organizer in other ways too. Head into Moom’s settings, and you can set up keyboard shortcuts, as well as drag and drop.
Top 6 Window Manager Apps for Mac
While Moom is similar to other apps on this list, it does have a few tricks up its sleeve. First, there are several ways to use the app. You can either set it up in your Dock, have it stay in the Menu Bar, or use it as an invisible app running in the background.
The 6 Best Mac Window Management Tools
Moom lets you resize your window differently. Instead of putting everything in the menu bar, the window management options reside inside the green button. To view those different arrangements, you'll have to press the Option key while hovering your mouse over the green button.
Moom vs Magnet vs Spectacle
But that’s not all. Moom supports window layouts snapshots. This means that it can record where is each window so they can be restored after a trigger. This trigger can be connecting a second display or just a keyboard shortcut. This feature makes this tool way more powerful than its rivals.
