Hi,

I m an linux user who has to use MS Windows at work,

Thanks to you and projects such as bb4win, my life at work sucks less :D.

 

One thing I m missing, maybe I have not found the right plugin,

would be the possibility to move, minimize, maximize, close and so on from key bindings like:

 - WIN + hold mouse left on app => move window,

 - WIN + hold mouse right on app => resize window,

 - WIN + mouse left dbl click on app => maximize unmaximize window,

 - WIN + mouse right click on app => minimize window,

 - WIN + mouse middle click on app => close window.

 

The idea is to get rid of the window title bar.

 

1. Is there a possibility to do such things?

 

 

Meanwhile, I m using a script with autohotkey app to do the job.

 

 

 

Another thing is MS Windows 7 added keyboard shortcut WIN+LEFT, RIGHT, UP, DOWN which changes window positions. I used these shortcuts to switch workspaces and move window from workspaces.

 

2. Is there a way to deactivate these MS Windows keybindings?

You need bbkeys to do all that.

But you lost me on getting rid of the window title bar. What do you mean, exactly?

i feel with you.

this is one of the cooler features of window managers (broke my heart when they screwed up the resize behavior in aewm ._.) and it's absolutely doable.

i mean, you're doing it with ahk currently :P

I ll look again to bbkeys, but i was not able to define mouse click bindings. For the titlebar, I meant the bar up to Software windows used to drag, close, minimize it... It becomes useless when u have the possibility to do such things through shortcuts. Yes, ahk is nice, but I need to update the script again, it behaves a little strange since I migrated to MSWindows 7.:\

http://winxmove.sourceforge.net/ As a linux user you'd probably like this, small footprint -at least for me until now- and was once bundle with one of the bb fork...I think it's unkamunka's bb4win...Pitkon will know better
