What if you want to duplicate or copy an a Mac app’s open window? And place that extra window on top of all other app windows? And resize it to fit on your Mac’s screen? That’s what Duplicate Windows does.
Many Mac users have multiple applications running at the same time, and among those we have various and sundry actions running in the background; music, YouTube, website monitoring, social networks, email, and more. How do you keep track of them all? You can’t. There just isn’t enough screen real estate but with Duplicate Windows you can capture open app windows, then resize them to fit wherever you want on the Mac’s screen.
The app just copies any open window on macOS, on the fly, and makes a mirror window which can be moved around and resized. Considering the nominal price tag, Duplicate Windows comes with a bunch of useful features.
- Duplicate any window. Select any window on your Mac, and get an instant resizable copy that stays up to date with the original.
- Monitor anything. Don’t disrupt your workflow. Watch videos. Watch a sports game. Monitor your servers. Keep an eye on any window you like. Just duplicate it, tell it to stay on top, resize it to just how you want it and get on with your work.
- Presenter Mode for any software. You can duplicate windows across monitors. Drive a software demo with your notes right along side on your laptop screen, while only projecting the software you’re demoing. You can even duplicate as many windows as you want.
Because much of daytime job is devoted to monitoring various apps on the Mac’s screen, I can save screen real estate and keep on top of the monitoring by resizing app windows once they are duplicated.
Grab a window. Duplicate the window. Tell the window to stay where you want, stay on top of other windows, or change the windows size to match your Mac’s display.
As cool a utility as Duplcate Windows is to use I admit it’s an acquired taste because you have to change your onscreen routine a bit to take advantage of all it can do. Nicely done. Inexpensive. No try before you buy, though.
