  • 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: Reddit / about 1 month 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: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • Makers, what are the tools you can't live without?
    Https:// There are many other window managers, but this is still one of the best (hint: shortcuts again). - Source: Reddit / 2 months 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: Reddit / 2 months 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: Reddit / 3 months 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: - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago

    Check out Moom app for all applications’ windows. - Source: Reddit / 4 months 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: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • Most of these have become essential to me at this point. What are some of your favorites?

  • How to hide this top white line on Mac?
    I use for window management, and if the Zoom button was hidden but not disabled, Moom would still show its popup where the button would be. Not sure if there are side effects in other apps, but no point in risking it. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • I don't understand the stage manager
    The inconsistency in maintaining a standard window size suited to my screen for each app (I've been experimenting with Moom which helps) – I can't stand inconsistent window sizes and find it distracting. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago

  • Your best recommendations for apps, which are not broadly known.
    Moom by Many Tricks. I have to have a lot of thesame windows opened and positioned in the same spot for productivity. With one click, able to position 10+ windows in the place I need them to be. Saves tons of time. - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago

  • Pent-up angst in the community about the erosion of the Mac experience
    > I'm convinced that most Mac users don't use multiple monitors and they're completely fine with the really poor window management. It boggles my mind; I am objectively less productive with a single monitor than I am with multiple. I'm a long time Mac user with an 25" 21:9 ultra-wide display that constitutes two regular office displays. A single ultradwide display is way superior to a couple of displays.... - Source: Hacker News / 8 months ago

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.
