2.0.0-rc3 Beta

This release candidate contains a large change to how MaxTo uses keyboard shortcuts. We can now override any system hotkey, so we have changed our default hotkeys:

  • Move windows using Windows + arrow keys
  • Swap windows using Windows + Alt + arrow keys
  • Center window on the monitor using Windows + Alt + C
  • Maximize to monitor using Windows + Alt + M

Note that these defaults are only applied if you start MaxTo without a configuration already applied. To remove your settings, you can delete the file %AppData%\MaxTo\config.json. You can also change the hotkeys manually to the defaults in the settings.

Other changes in this release:

  • Feature New keyboard shortcut editor.
  • Feature Allows overriding keyboard shortcuts from Windows.
  • Bug Will now delete scheduled task (to start MaxTo on logon) when MaxTo is uninstalled.
  • Bug CLI would sometimes use older versions instead of the latest installed version.
  • Bug Fix issue with Firefox window becoming very small. See issue #339.
  • Bug Fix issue where the move command would hang when trying to move a window to the same virtual desktop you were currently on. See issue #358.
  • Bug Fix issue where launching an application would provide wrong arguments to the launched program. See issue #357.
  • Bug Fix crash when saving presets. See issue #360.
