WiLMA for short, this is a fabulous must-have help if you have to keep track of many open windows at the same time, even over multiple monitors. (The developer shows a shot of eight monitors.) The main application has a basic window that allows the management of various layouts. Adding new ones, editing existing ones, configuring the options, all the basic things you can expect from any normal application. When closed or minimized it sits in the tray and offers a tray icon with quick access to layouts that are enabled (it’s possible to exclude layouts from populating the tray menu since some layouts are not meant to be applied directly). A layout is a collection of window definitions that contain conditions and actions. Conditions that describe the window and how it should be detected and matched and actions that allow various actions to be taken such as minimizing, moving, relocating, moving it to a different screen, offsetting the position, maximizing it to a certain screen, etc. There are three types of layouts: Normal Layouts: these contain window definitions where the entire layout can be applied to a current desktop. Individual Window Layouts: these contain window definitions that can be applied individually through an active window context popup menu. Live Layouts: these are layouts where the system is monitored and when windows that match any or all definitions it will apply the actions to that window as it becomes available and gets noticed
