Use System Preferences > Displays > Scaled for more resolution to get more pixels on the Mac’s screen. Now, once you have more room on the screen, most of us clutter it up with ever more open apps and their respective windows. Clutter, clutter, clutter. Clean it up this way.
Cleanliness And Godliness
Once the Mac’s screen is populated with open apps, the clutter begins but there’s a way to tidy up the screen with little effort, and put app windows in their place. Literally and figuratively.
Use Window Tidy, a Mac utility which uses a simple customizable grid so all you need to do is drag an app to where you want to position it on the pop out grid. First, setup the Window Tidy grid the way you prefer.
For most smaller apps, I set them into a corner quadrant. For larger apps, such as Safari, I set them to half the screen.
It’s simple to customize each layout, add to or remove each as needed. Window Tidy handles Macs with multiple displays, too, and includes an independent grid size for each display layout.
There’s also a useful option to move an active app window to a current screen, and you can assign keyboard shortcuts to the layouts which is especially useful when using the trackpad or mouse is less convenient.
In the end, what you get is an improved workflow where app windows stay put so you know where they are at all times, and it becomes easy to switch between them with little effort.
App window management utilities for the Mac are an acquired taste. You need to try it for awhile to see the value, but Window Tidy gets plenty of five star reviews for a reason. It’s the most elegant of the app window managers, it’s priced about right, and, even though it’s a Mac App Store app, the developer has a try-before-you-buy option.
