Windows 7: Hot Corners for Windows

Hot Corners for Windows

Is there a good program that gives Windows 7 the Hot Corners function, ie. when you move the mouse to a corner of the screen, an action will be performed. Similar to Aero Peek, but I want it for the 3 other corners of my screen.

I used this program, but sadly it has very limited actions. hotcorners (programsforpeers)

Is there anything better?

"Hot Corners" is called Expose in Mac OS X. If you'd like to use it on Windows, there are a few programs available that will perform the function(s) you wish to use and possibly more. Here are some links.

Switcher: Switcher for Windows Vista

DExpose2: home (devrexster)

SmallWindows: SmallWindows

From what I've heard and read, Switcher is the best choice, although DExpose2 may be smoother in the transitions. I'd try them all and pick the one you like most.

Thanks for the links and suggestions. But I don't want Expose. I to be able to select what happens when I move my mouse to a corner. Like simulate a keystoke, launch a program and so on.

I'll hate myself if I attempt this and drop it... but... I might be able to make an app to do this. I'll post back in a few hours on whether or not I can.

Okay, it's possible. Right now it's triggered via sides, not corners, so I will attempt to get this working better.

Hey Prisoner! Thanks for the app... do you have the code behind it. I'd like to take a look at it, and probably make it run once not every second.

Thanks
