It is a great program but without a good tutorial. There are a lot of technical documents, which is is interesting if there is first a basic tutorial to help the user start. To really understand this software there must be a knowledge of autohotkey. For those familiar with autoit and not autohotkey, there may be a learning curve. See More
Bug.n can increase the available screen estate by freeing up the space occupied by the Microsoft Windows Taskbar & the title bar for every single window by hiding and replacing all with a single slim status bar. The status bar shows the current config of your window setup & can also show system information like time, date and memory usage. See More
The GUI for window splitting can be a bit tedious to work with - while it offers great customizability, it does require either calculating how many pixels you'd like, or trying it hit-and-miss if you'd like to i.e. fit an IM program with the contact list to a side of the screen. In other words - no real-time preview, and the splits' edges don't travel together when adjusting edges around. See More
While Windows limits your customization to 1 wallpaper and 1 screensaver, which has limitations for certain applications. For example, if your monitors have different resolutions or aspect ratios, wallpapers don't always play nice. Display Fusion lets you have a different wallpaper for each monitor which alleviates issues like this. In industrial applications, this means that you could have a customer-facing monitor which has a different (more professional) wallpaper and screensaver. See More
Using keyboard shortcuts, you can lock your mouse to the confines of an area (a window, or even a specific monitor - useful for gaming), as well as resizing or moving the window. These are great additions to the window shortcuts built into Windows (alt+tab, Alt+F4, Win + D, etc). See More
