How to move active IE window

5 posts in this topic

I want to use WinMove to shift the currently-active (on top) Explorer window up a couple of hundred pixels. But WinMove requires the "title", which is not something my script knows (since Explorer titles depend on the content being viewed).

I can't get a handle (no pun intended) on how to approach this. I first thought this might be easy, but my searches haven't led me to anything I can recognize as a solution. And IE.au3 doesn't seem to work with the window, itself.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

$pos = WinGetPos("[Active]")
WinMove("[Active]", "", $pos[0], $pos[1] - 100)

LoginWrapper Secure scripts by adding a query (authentication)

_RunOnlyOnThis UDF Make sure that a script can only be executed on ... (Windows / HD / ...)

Internet-Café Server/Client Application Open CD, Start Browser, Lock remote client, etc.

MultipleFuncsWithOneHotkey Start different funcs by hitting one hotkey different times

Thanks very much.

As a test, I'm going to implement it using your 'MultiFuncsPerHotKey script' ... Size Up/Down ... and will post the result.

Here's the resulting script. Now, if only window height could be set larger than @DesktoHeight+12, then I could have even more viewable space in a browser window. But I'm sensing that's a solid limitation ... and this is certainly an improvment. Thanks again for the assistance.

;
; Position Active Window using F9 as hotkey
;
HotKeySet("{F9}", "pressed")
Dim $i = 0, $PushTime = 1000
While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd
Func pressed()
    $i += 1
    Sleep($PushTime)
    Switch $i
        Case 1
$pos = WinGetPos("[Active]")  ;move active window up 100
WinMove("[Active]", "", $pos[0], $pos[1] - 100)
        Case 2
$pos = WinGetPos("[Active]")  ;mover active window down 100
WinMove("[Active]", "", $pos[0], $pos[1] + 100)
        Case 3
$pos = WinGetPos("[Active]")  ;maximize height of active window
WinMove("[Active]", "", $pos[0], $pos[1] , @DesktopWidth, @DesktopHeight+12)
        Case 4
            Exit (0)    ;exit upon 4 presses
    EndSwitch
    $i = 0
EndFunc   ;==>pressed
