WinRoll Review

Dennis Faas's picture

WinRoll is an add-on for managing all of the open windows on your desktop.

If you typically have more than four or five windows open, it can be a chore switching between windows. WinRoll will "roll up" a window when you right click on its title bar. Right click again and it unrolls. Hold down the alt key before clicking and all open windows roll up. Quote from the homepage:

" Make a window roll into its title bar, send it to the back or make it stay on top. Minimize, maximize or close all visible windows, including minimizing to the tray area. Make a window translucent on Windows 2000 or above. WinRoll is lovingly hand-crafted in 100% pure assembly language to give the fastest response and the smallest memory footprint. WinRoll is proudly a freeware and an open source application. " (Source:

To be honest with you, at home I don't have much use for this tool because I rarely have more than three windows open. However, while I'm at work, this just might save me some time. ;-)

Side note: I had trouble finding the download link on the homepage. If you can't find it, try this alternate download link.
