WinSplit Revolution 11.04
Lightweight and easy to use
The application is cleverly optimized to run on any machine it is installed on. Taking up roughly about 1 Mb of space on your hard disk drive and using a barely noticeable amount of system resources, it tempts you to give it a try.
Most of its time it stays hidden in the system tray. Except for the hotkey manager and settings menu, there are no other windows to take up precious space on your desktop. You are able to freely customize combination of keys for each given feature or use the default ones, which are comfortable enough.
Have windows arranged at the press of a button
Several presets give you the possibility to test out available features. Either putting hotkeys to good use or taking advantage of a virtual numpad, you can easily have any active window resized and moved to a specific location on your desktop.
Moreover, the application lets you add custom zones. However, it's rather difficult to get the desired result, seeing how you are required to set coordinates and size in percentage, without the aid of a preview section. Several attempts need to be made in order to get settings just right.
Taking everything into consideration, we can say that WinSplit Revolution is a handy application you can use to cleverly organize windows placed on your desktop. Its pride relies in the integrated hotkey support. It even proves helpful when dealing with multiple monitors, letting you quickly move windows around, without using your mouse.

- Bug Fix : The settings (including the VirtualNumpad position and style) were not saved when WinSplit was closed by the end of the user's session.
- Improvement : The installer and uninstaller language will now be set automatically, regarding the system's language. The registry keys created by the previous installers has been removed, so the "portable mode" won't touch anything in the registry.
- Bug Fix : The update and/or uninstall process fails because of a dll file that can't be replaced. People will probably still encounter problems to update to this release. If so, there is now a "Cleanup Tool" available in the download page.
- Bug Fix : The message "Impossible to install hooks" was often shown at WinSplit startup, and the checkbox saying "Do not display this message anymore" wasn't working as expected
