Abstract

In a CRT windows environment, it is desirable to resize and relocate widows such that they don't overlap one another. The mechanism described below allows the user to resize and place the window(s) in a predetermined location on the CRT screen with a single button depression. This invention avoids waste of but- tons (which can be redetined to do something else) and time (it takes time to use the cursor buttons/mouse to resize and drag the windows to their new location).
