How can I move all the window controls to the right (or left)?


Not really. Sure a keyboard may be able to utilize the windows operating system through hotkeys and other such key presses but in this world, it is next to impossible to easily use a computer without a mouse. If it were you'd be seeing ultra slim and compact notebooks only having a keyboard. As for new technology, there could be something if you research it enough, maybe just give it a simple google search and if you find something, great! However, if you don't then there probably isn't anything out there like that, that exists. There is something that uses eye gestures, however, it's mainly used for extending the way you use a computer but you also need to rely on a keyboard and...

The Mission Control feature in Mac OS X allows you to arrange windows into several different screens you can quickly switch between. This feature was formerly known as Spaces, and is called virtual desktops or workspaces on Linux.

For example, you could have a desktop for work programs and a desktop for personal applications. When you want to switch between work and play, you can simply switch virtual desktops without having to move all those windows around.

Getting Started With Mission Control

Multiple desktops are part of the Mission Control feature. To access it, swipe up with three or four fingers on your trackpad — the number of fingers you need to use depends on how you have your trackpad set up. You can also just tap the F3 button on your Mac.

In addition to all your open windows, you’ll see a single “Desktop” at the top of the screen by default. Drag and drop a window from the Mission Control view to the right of the desktop...

So for those of you who do not like to use a mouse, it would be pretty cool if you could move a window using just the keyboard in Windows 7 right? Well, there are a couple of ways to do this and even though you may not need to do it very often, it does come in handy on the rare occasion!

In this article, I’ll tell you how to move a window in small increments to the exact position you want, how to snap a window to the left or right and how to move a window between monitors on a multi-monitor setup, all by just using the keyboard!

Method 1 – Incremental Move

For exact positioning, you first need to click on the window. Now this is obviously going to only work for windows that are not fully maximized. If it’s fully maximized, there is really nowhere to move the window.

Step 1: Either click on the window or if you want to use the keyboard, press ALT+TAB and make the window you want to move active.

Step 2: Now go ahead and press ALT+SPACEBAR and...

Adroit Windows 7 and 8 users love snapping windows to the left and right edges of the screen. Microsoft calls this urbane feature Aero Snap and it’s a smart way to manage screen clutter.

Simply grabbing a window by the title bar and dragging it left or right edges of the screen forces the operating system to quickly snap the window to one half of the screen.

Snapping is a great way to multitask because it makes comparing differences between documents easy. It makes reading emails and viewing the related photo attachments a joy. Aero snap generally makes organizing screen elements really efficient and once you start to use it you’ll probably agree that it made you more productive.

Now most people can get by with a single monitor, especially if it’s greater than 23 inches; however, if you’re fortunate enough to have two monitors you might notice that you can’t snap windows against the edge of the screen that butts up against the other monitor. This is because...

A trackbar is a window that contains a slider (sometimes called a thumb) in a channel, and optional tick marks. When the user moves the slider, using either the mouse or the direction keys, the trackbar sends notification messages to indicate the change.

Trackbars are useful when you want the user to select a discrete unsigned integer value or a set of consecutive unsigned integer values in a range. For example, you might use a trackbar to allow the user to set the repeat rate of the keyboard by moving the slider to a given tick mark. The following illustration shows a typical trackbar.

The slider in a trackbar moves in increments that you specify when you create it. The values in this range are referred to as logical units. For example, if you specify that the trackbar should have logical units that range from 0 to 5, the slider can occupy only six positions: a position at the left side of the trackbar and one position for each increment in the range....

It is not often that you need to move a window using the keyboard only in the Windows operating system. Windows is designed to be used with a mouse besides the keyboard, and now touch. Every Windows user at least has a touchpad or mouse these days. However, if the keyboard is what you prefer to use, then here is how you can move a window using the keyboard! Moving a window using the keyboard can be useful if your window is partially or fully out of the screen or if some buttons that you need to click are under the Taskbar which usually appears always on top covering them.

To move a window using keyboard only in Windows 10 and all earlier Windows versions, do the following:

Switch to the desired window using Alt + Tab.
Tip: See how to tweak Alt+Tab to enlarge thumbnails and disable live aero peek preview. Also see two secrets of Alt + Tab dialog in Windows 10 you might not be aware of. Press Alt + Space shortcut keys together on the keyboard to open the...

Did you ever suddenly find yourself with a window that is so large that part of it, including the title bar, is off the screen? For example, maybe somebody sent you an oversized picture taken with one of those many-megapixel cameras. With no title bar visible, you can’t move the window with the mouse. But there is an old trick that goes all the way back to Windows 3. It allows you to use the keyboard and a menu called the system or control menu to move or resize a window.

Normally, this little-used menu can be opened by clicking on the icon in the upper left corner of a window but there is also a keyboard shortcut to open it. Enter the keyboard combination Alt+Space Bar. An example of the menu that opens is shown in the figure on the right. The menu is used by entering the underlined letter for an action.

Short answer:

It seems that Canonical went the totalitarian way and ordered that users should not be allowed to change the buttons position (you can find more technical details of this change on the bottom of this post).

As for now the only way to have windows buttons on the right side in 14.04 is to switch from Unity to the Gnome Flashback session (what I personally recommend). More details on how to do that are presented below.

Switching to Gnome Flashback:

Open terminal and run the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository universe sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install gnome-session-flashback

Next logout and select Gnome Flashback session in login manager.

You can select between Metacity and Compiz managers. Metacity is more lightweight, however it lacks some effects. With Compiz you will get more similar experience to Unity. You can speed up Compiz by turning off animations plugin (use...

Limiting Window Resizing

One of the problems that arises when you have a resizable limit is preventing the window from becoming too small. There is also an issue about limiting the maximum size.

This article shows how to limit the minimum size. The technique of limited the maximum size is left as an Exercise For The Reader (but I'll talk about some of the issues involved).

This particular technique deals with a dialog-based app, but it can apply to any window. You can also apply it to a CFormView class, CPropertyPage class, or other class.

If you apply this to a CMainFrame class, you probably have to use GetDeviceCaps to compute the resolution of the screen in pixels-per-inch, but I have done this so rarely that I am not convinced it matters very much.

In the case of a dialog, you will have to set the Border property of the dialog to be Resizing:

You can also do this by going to the User Interface page and selecting Thick...

Keyboard and Mouse Usage

RO's character movement is entirely controlled by the mouse. The keyboard is used for chatting, typing manual commands, changing the camera angle, and using skills quickly. Jumping in Ragnarok Online is not possible with the exception of the TaeKwon class.

Mouse Controls

The mouse controls the following actions in RO:

Movement: Left-click a cell to move to it. Hold down the left mouse button for continuous movement. If the cell is not highlighted or is highlighted in red, that place is impossible to reach. Camera: Changing the side view: Hold down the right mouse button and the cursor will become two arrows curving left and right. Move the mouse left [while holding the right mouse button] and the camera will rotate around the character to the left. Likewise, moving the mouse right will rotate the camera to the right. Changing magnification: Roll the mouse-wheel to zoom in and out. To do this without a mouse-wheel, hold...

My Windows Media Center suddenly popped up too high so can’t get to controls to pull it down to close/max/minimize screen. Your answer about alt+space, m doesn’t work with media center. Desperate to get it back under control!

You didn’t indicate whether or not you were using Windows 7, but given that Windows Media Center is part of it, and it does indeed not pay attention to ALT+SPACE like it should, I’ll show you “the other way”.

The problem is that “the other way” changed from Windows XP to Windows 7, and many people that used to use it are also somewhat lost searching for it.

What’s called the “System Menu” used to be accessible in a single click from the task bar. In Windows 7, there’s an additional step.

In Windows XP and Windows Vista, if you right click on a running program in the taskbar up would pop the System Menu for that program (type the Windows key once first if your taskbar isn’t showing):

That’s the same as the ALT+Space...

Initially, a spreadsheet was, and can still be, a sheet of paper used to store and display financial data.

An electronic spreadsheet program is an interactive computer application such as Excel, OpenOffice Calc, or Google Sheets that mimics a paper spreadsheet.

As with the paper version, this type of application is used for storing, organizing and manipulating data, but it also has a number of built-in features and tools, such as functions, formulas, charts, and data analysis tools that make it easier to work with and maintain large amounts of data.

In Excel and other current applications, individual spreadsheet files are referred to as workbooks.

Spreadsheet File Organization

When you look at a spreadsheet program on screen - as seen in the image above - you see a rectangular table or grid of rows and columns. The horizontal rows are identified by numbers (1,2,3) and...

Every once in a while for a variety of reasons, it’s possible for a window to get positioned such that its title bar – the bar across the top of the window with the program name as well as the Minimize, Maximize, and Restore buttons – is off the screen, becoming both impossible to see and impossible to click on using the mouse.

Almost as common are windows that are completely off screen – perhaps due to unplugging a second monitor before moving all windows back to the remaining screen.

If you’re used to using the controls on a window’s title bar to move, manipulate, or otherwise deal with the application, you’re kind of out of luck.

At least if you’re using a mouse.

It might be time to break out the keyboard interface.

The title bar

For our example, I’ll fire up Notepad. Here’s what I’m referring to when I talk about the title bar:

In addition to the title, the title bar also includes the System Menu on the far left, as...
