WindowTangler Review

Fernando Ortega
Powerful, free utility for desktop productivity and privacy
A review of WindowTangler by Fernando Ortega

WindowTangler is a useful utility which helps you keep on top of things by organizing windows in to groups.

The application can perform different tasks on groups of windows such as hiding and showing them, hiding them on a schedule and generally helps clear up clutter from the desktop depending on what you're currently doing.

WindowTangler includes several useful features, not least of which is the possibility to define custom hot keys. They can either be local to groups or create global actions.

If hot keys aren't your thing, the features of WindowTangler can be accessed from the system tray in a simple and easy-to-understand menu.

In conclusion, WindowTangler is an excellent application which helps improve productivity by cleaning up and grouping windows on your PC.

WindowTangler features and highlights:
  • Specify groups of windows based on your own personal use
  • Create custom hot keys to show or hide those groups of windows instantly
  • Create timers to instantly show or hide your groups of windows during busy hours
  • Create global hot keys to control system-wide events
  • Access everything from a simple, intuitive tray menu
