This little tool limits the size of any maximized application (from any side), so it is possible to simulate always visible sidebar gadgets on Windows 7 (just as under Vista).
I had problems with not working fly-outs of some gadgets when using Vista Sidebar on Windows 7. So I moved back to original Windows 7 Sidebar. The only problem is every maximized window will cover gadgets. They can be set always on top, but it looks even worse if you work with maximized applications.
Features:
It can be enabled or disabled at any time.
Margin size (in pixels) can be defined for each side of the display simultaneously (Margin is just an area that will not be covered by maxmized windows. Normal windows are not affected).
It works on selected display.
By pressing selected key (for example left shift) MaxMax can be disabled temporarily.
It is possible to exclude any program (e.q. notepad.exe) from MaxMax size limiting.
