I am using Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2, often I like to display 2 windows side by side, does anyone know if there is any application which makes it possible to tile windows by simple keyboard shortcuts?


I use Better Touch Tool to do that.

Here's an example configuration that has a keyboard shortcut for resizing to the right half and one for the left half. I also have a shortcut that quickly maximizes a window. Example BTT configuration

  • Thanks for your comment... It seems that if I log out and log in, I need to reactive BTT, do you have any solution to keep it always activated? – SoftTimur Mar 27 '12 at 2:06

    Yes, in BTT, click General Settings, and then make sure "Launch BetterTouchTool on Startup" is checked. – penguinrob Mar 27 '12 at 2:07
  • I see, that works... BTW, is it a product still in Beta stage? Why isn't it in Apple Store? – SoftTimur Mar 27 '12 at 2:13

    See the author's blog posts about that - blog.boastr.net/?p=2229 and blog.boastr.net/?p=2698 So it's a stable app and works great, just not available in the mac app store. – penguinrob Mar 27 '12 at 2:18
