The command line interface to MaxTo is new in version 2.0, and it is very powerful.
With MaxTo's command line, you can do anything you can do in a recipe; even run other recipes.
Getting started with the CLI is easy, but getting to know all the commands may not be. For now, open up Command
C:\>maxto MaxTo CLI version 22.214.171.1246 Matches for your help query launch Launch a program window center Center window window focus Focus on window window maximize Maximize window to screen window move Move window regions apply Load preset regions highlight Highlight regions license apply Apply license license remove Remove license license status Check if MaxTo is licensed service restart Restart MaxTo services service start Start MaxTo services service stop Stop MaxTo services
Great, we got hold of MaxTo. Most of the options presented here are actually commands, so you can run these as if you were in a recipe.
Let's try centering the Command Prompt window on the current monitor.
C:\>maxto window center Success: MaxTo.Core.Commands.Window.CenterCommand+Result
When you executed this command without arguments, it takes the foreground window (which is the Command Prompt window) and moves it to the center of the current monitor.
For each command, there is a detailed help page available. If you don't know how a command works, you can
maxto help <command>, and MaxTo will present your options.
C:\>maxto help window focus MaxTo CLI version 126.96.36.1996 Command Focus on window Description Move the focus to a window in a specific direction. Syntax maxto window focus [/Window <value>] [/Direction <value>] Parameters /Window <value> The window you want to receive the focus.

You can find windows by specific the exact window title, the exact window class, or the window handle (in hexadecimal, formatted as "0xdeadbeef". /Direction <value> In which direction we should look for windows.
So if you want to move the focus to the window to your right, the correct command would be
focus /Direction Right.
