Simulating a titlebar click

06 Oct 2020, 10:28

Hi all,

I use this https://www.autohotkey.com/docs_1.0/scripts/EasyWindowDrag_(KDE).htm script to easily move windows around my screen without clicking on the title bar. However, I also use software to split my screens into smaller parts. So if I move a window (by clicking and dragging the title bar) while holding shift, I can snap it into a dedicated place on one of my screens. I use dell software for this, but it works exactly the same as the powertools function.

This functionality unfortunately doesn't work with the easy window drag script. As I use windows without a title bar quite often, It's not as easy to snap these windows into place. I was hoping that it would be possible to simulate this 'click the titlebar and drag' without actually clicking the title bar.

I found this thread: https://autohotkey.com/board/topic/80594-how-to-enable-drag-for-a-gui-without-a-titlebar/
However, adding

Code: Select all

PostMessage, 0xA1, 2,,, A
to the easy window drag script doesn't work for me. Does anyone have an idea (if this is even possible)?

Thanks!
