Set Work Area 1.1.0.0

Set Work Area 1.1.0.0 Command line utility for XP and later to show or set the Desktop Work Area.

You can download from my page here:

Faves Downloads

Note that setting the work area will not "stick" unless the Taskbar AutoHide is disabled.

This utility is meant for those who have taskbars or launchers on more than one side of the screen. Or if you prefer entering the exact numbers for the work area in pixels.



Install: None. Copy to a folder in your Path.

Uninstall: None. Just delete SetWA.exe.

Usage: SetWA
Displays current work area numbers and help switch

Usage: SetWA /?
or SetWA and anything other than 4 numbers
Displays Usage with valid ranges for parameters.

Usage: SetWA Left Top Right Bottom (e.g. SetWA 0 0 1280 908)
Will attempt to set the work area to the specified numbers.

Note that I only have a single monitor setup. Therefore I can't support
multiple monitors.

Hint: If you chop the work area down too much and didn't make a note
of the original work area numbers, 2 easy ways to get back to normal.
Either log off, then back on, or Enable Taskbar AutoHide, then Disable it.
Either way Windows will reset the work area to normal.

Note this has been superseded by Adjust Work Area that can be downloaded from the same page. The new download is only 40 KB. I rewrote the command line program using FreeBASIC compiler. It's a stand-alone win32 exe. No run time needed.

It works the same. See the included Readme.txt.

I've come across this Email client whilst searching for a suitable one to use with Windows 8. It is very easy to use and configure.
