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.


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

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
