Right clicking on the title bar of any window in Windows operating systems gives you some general options like moving, maximizing or minimizing and closing the window.
The mutation of the Windows operating system has made it advanced and more user friendly. But one thing I noticed that the context menu of the title bar in Windows explorer are same from its childhood.
But I’ve found a small but efficient utility Moo0 WindowMenuPlus that adds some advanced features in the title bar context menu. This application works in Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows 7 and vista.
The following features are added to the context menu which are not included by default. Note: The existing features remain effective.
- Transparency: You can set the window transparency from 10% to 100%.
- Keep on top: This option makes the window belonging at the top of the other windows.
- Kill Process: Allows you to terminate the responsible program. This option does not work for Windows explorer.
- Free Unused Memory: Shows the excess memory which can be freed.
- Process Priority: The underlying process priority can be changed.
- Find this Program: Opens program location in the Windows Explorer in new window.
- Program Information: Displays the details of the information about the program.
- Iconize to Tray: This feature is very interesting. It places the window to the system tray when minimized, even if by default it is not supported.
Getting started with Moo0 WindowMenuPlus
Download Moo0 WindowMenuPlus and click on the executive file to start the installation procedure. The installation process is very simple including the option of starting the program with system boot and many more. Once you are finished with the installation, it starts to run automatically.
From the system tray, you can control the advanced window handler options like making the program On/Off, choosing the options that should be included or hidden in the title bar context menu etc.
Note: The title bar context menu can be obtained by left-clicking on the application icon at the left corner of the application window’s title bar.
