WinTile is easy to use, customizable windows tiling manager. Move and expand windows easily with hotkeys. It should work on windows that have .NET 4.5 and higher.
Original windows tiling (Areo Snap) and similar implementations were limited, they lacked keyboard binding and custom layouts.
How does it work
WinTile is a simple WPF app, that wraps around native windows
user32.dll API. It can start with windows and bind hotkeys at start. Hotkeys are registered globally with
User32.UnregisterHotKey. Each action uses
User32.SetWindowPos in some sense and couple other methods.
