Microsoft has added several new features to their Windows 7 operating system. These new features include the Aero Snap and Aero Shake options that allow the user to snap windows to the corner of the computer screen or to minimize all other windows by shaking the mouse.
These features are not available in Windows XP or Windows Vista. AquaSnap brings those two features to those two operating systems. The program calls them AquaSnap and AquaShake which basically ports the Windows 7 features to the operating systems.
The developer offers the original features and modified versions that come with additional settings and options.
AquaSnap for instance comes with four different modes with one being an exact copy of AeroSnap in Windows 7. The other three modes add additional regions on the border. AquaSnap simple for instance makes use of the bottom border as well so that it becomes possible to display two windows horizontally and vertically. This is topped by the advanced version that supports a total of eight different regions.
AquaShake can also mimic the AeroShake option of Windows 7 or use an advanced version to shake a window so that it will remain always on top. Several sliders are provided to change the opacity and shake detection.
The third feature of AquaSnap is a glass effect. This is turned off by default. AquaSnap brings features of Windows 7 to Windows XP and Windows Vista. Those features might be interesting for some users. The program can be downloaded from the developer’s website. It is compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
