Windows There is one thing that really pushes my buttons, one thing that is sure to send me off on a rant on life, the universe, and everything. I have a 21" widescreen 1680x1050 display - which might not be large to some of the real geeks in here, but to me, it's pretty huge. With so much screen real estate, why oh why do my friends all still insist on maximising every window they come across when they sit down behind my computer? This - and more - is the subject of the latest post on Microsoft's Engineering 7 weblog.

Maximize Vertical

A feature that I have seen and liked on kde is to ability to maximise a window vertically. If you click on the maximise button with different mouse buttons you get different effects.

Left click = maximise as normal
Middle click = maximise vertically
Right click = maximise horizontally

This worked really well in my opion and I miss it on windows.
