Windows 7: Window list (with so many entries)

27 Mar 2014   #1

Windows 7 Pro 64bit
Window list (with so many entries)


Often I need to open so many instances of the same software (putty).
In this case, windows list becomes larger than screen size, and I need to scroll up and down to find specific window.
It's possible to group those windows on different columns, for example?
Thank you

There are various window arranger utilities available. I'm not sure about column features. Check the freeware sites. An alternative may be virtual desktop software. You can divide the windows into groups. One group in each virtual desktop. Here's a few excellent freeware sites to check:

How about CTL and minus (-) to make the window on the screen smaller. Then more would fit..
