Prevent maximised windows from completely covering your screen

MaxMax is an easy-to-use tool that prevents maximised windows from fully covering the screen, which means you're able to leave a margin on the left, right, top or bottom.

This can be useful if, say, you want to monitor some desktop gadget or similar tools, but find they keep getting covered whenever you maximise a window. You could always minimise it again, of course, or perhaps press Alt+Tab to switch tasks, but with MaxMax running this doesn't have to be a concern at all.

By default the program leaves a 160-pixel margin on the right-hand side of the screen. If that's not suitable for you, though, right-click the icon, select Configure, and tweak the settings to suit your needs. 

In our experience this all worked very well, but if you have problems with particular applications then that also doesn't have to be a major issue. By pressing a user-definable hotkey (left shift by default) you're able to disable the program temporarily, and so fully maximise whatever other apps you might happen to be using. And MaxMax also provides an Exclusions list where you can name any processes you'd like it to ignore; these will be allowed to maximise as normal.

Verdict:

MaxMax is a simple and straightforward way to get a little more control over how windows are maximised on your PC

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
