    Best monitor divider software for windblows?

    Trying to be faster and more productive so I've gone to a multi monitor setup and new desktop with windblows 11. What's the best free divider software for cheap fucks like me?

    I was under the impression windows could handle multi-monitor setups inherently - that not right?

    so it's not for adding a monitor, it's for making predetermined sections in those multiple monitors to drag your windows to, and where they auto-fill in those predetermined sections.

    I ran 2-3 monitors for years and now use one massive ultrawide, never needed any special software. Windows handles it all just fine, you can drag/snap to divide the monitor in half, if I need more than two windows side by side (rare) then I just manually resize them. Apparently Microsoft has a free addon called PowerToys, maybe check that out.

    What would be the point of that?
    I have goals too you know.

    If I can absorb all the stupid in the room, sometimes I can learn something and help others.

    Real power users always get more than 2 monitors and turn them portrait mode.

    Both my PCs have multiple monitors, including my work PC using an ultrawide + second monitor in portrait mode. Agree with the above, IMO Windows handles it all just fine without any additional software.

    I usually manually set my main window at 2/3 width on the ultrawide and my other 3-4 programs I need open just resized to the remaining 1/3

    Seems like a solution in search of a problem. I've been in IT for 22 years. 4 years of CS schoolin' including a year as a co-op before that. I've never heard of 'divider software'.

    Just imagine for a moment - other people's needs, wants, and desires, aren't like yours.

    Ya. It's pretty funny. Especially if you remember he wrote some of the freaking code for the Windows NT kernel or something like that.
