Hi !

Most of you know desktop-enhancements like DesktopX, Aston, LiteStep or NextStart. One feature of them is the ability to restrict the desktoparea so that maximized windows will not fill the whole desktop.

Does anyone know how to make this possible ?


My intention is to make a little tool-collection for desktop enhancements.

It's done !


Using the WinAPI SystemParametersInfo from User32 makes this possible. There's a subfunction SETWORKAREA which allows to (re)set the desktops' workarea.
