Color me afflicted with an incurable and seemingly genetic disease. I suffer from OCD, which I am certain I inherited from my wife, who ensures the Mincey household is in pristine running order.
A little OCD goes a long way, even for Mac users who have grown tired of a dozen Mac apps cluttering up the screen. Here’s a solution and it won’t cost a penny.
Dock Me, Baby, One More Time!
The problem with the Mac’s screen real estate these days is that it’s still limited, even for Mac users who are fortunate enough to have a 27-inch iMac.
You can just never have enough RAM, enough storage, and, so it seems, enough pixels on the screen. Enter Tuck, the way to keep the screen uncluttered.
Tuck is free and does pretty much one thing. It tucks an app’s window to the side of your Mac’s screen.
Think about that for a moment. If you’re like most Mac users and open up half a dozen to a dozen apps on a single screen, you know the horror of visual clutter.
For whatever reason, Apple chose not to build in some way of organizing all those odd app window sizes, assuming we’d do it ourselves.
Tuck does it instead.
Tuck could not be much easier to use unless it just automatically docked every open app window.
Where would the fun be in that? To massage your OCD infliction, click on Tuck’s Menubar, and the frontmost app window will be, well, tucked Left, Right, or Bottom on the screen.
And, well that’s it. Tuck moves the app window to the location of your choice and it stays there until you move the screen pointer to that screen edge and the app’s window slides out into view again.
Tuck leaves a little piece sticking out when using Spaces so you’ll see where the window is placed. It’s simple, elegant, useful and priced right. For now.
