There’s two problems with Mac screens. They’re too small. And they’re too big. What? I can’t have it both ways? Yes, I can.
For MacBook users, regardless of screen size, the screen can get crowded with open apps and windows.
For iMac users, even with the 27-inch display, the screen real estate meets a digital version of Parkinson’s Law (work expands to fill the time available). Open apps and windows expand to fill the screen’s size.
If you struggle from time to time to find the app and window you want, try iSnap. It’s a free window management tool for your Mac. All it does is let you move app screens to a place that helps calm your OCD.
Take a look at this. A Finder window and a Safari window peacefully coexisting side-by-side on a small Mac screen.
Instead of you having to drag and move windows around the screen and hoping for the best, iSnap lets you drag and drop windows and they snap into place in a quadrant on the screen.
Look how much easier the Finder is when you have two windows open. Drag and drop file and folders between the two.
They’re not free, but the come with more management features and can be driven by keyboard shortcuts.
