WindowTangler screenshotWindowTangler is an effective, free to use program for sorting and controlling sets of windows on your desktop. It enables you to set up timers or hot keys to hide or show various kinds of windows, gaining precious desktop space and cut out distractions from your daily workflow.

Take a second to think about how your Microsoft Windows desktop looks on a daily basis. If you are like most users, it is probably covered with various of messed up windows, many of which can be very confusing when you are trying to get task done! With WindowTangler, you can.

WindowTangler examines the title of desktop windows, so you can always add which particular tools make sense on your system.

WindowTangler registers hot keys universally, so you can be working in any other software when you use the configured key combination.

Visibility timers are an exclusive WindowTangler feature, aimed at offering a productivity window to let you focus on your tasks.

Additionally to managing particular windows and groups, you can determine hot keys to automatically do big operations (like show and hide all desktop windows.)

WindowTangler gives you more discipline over your desktop. Here are some examples of things you might want to try with it:

- You can configure a window group called Web Browsers, with a hot key to switch their visibility at once. Now, when you want to avert the distracting world of social networks or e-mail, a single, global key press will automatically make all of your browser windows not accessible to view. Press the key sequence again and they will pop right back into view.

- Very much alike to the examples above, you can also generate a timer to hide a window group.
