In order to keep the Tablet PC or UMPC portable, the size is kept fairly small. In general, Tablets have screens of 12 inches or even less with a maximum resolution of 1024x768 pixels, and when you have to work with many windows simultaneously, organization becomes even more important.

Transparency effect, minimizing to a small icon in the system tray/on the screen edge, deactivated window minimization, Roll-Up/Unroll, Stay on Top, hotkeys support, right-click context menu, full Windows integration, individual settings for every window, multilingual support and it is just the beginning!

But what are the benefits to Tablet PC user? Let?s examine some interesting situations, concerning Tablet PC.
Situation #1. Pin on Top.
Moving data between active windows is a pain on a Tablet PC because you can't easily position the windows for drag and drop. But using Actual Window Manager you can open the first window, pin it in place, and then open the other window. With the source of the information stuck securely on top, you can drag each piece of information where in belongs without any window switching. When you are done you can unpin with a second tap of the thumbtack icon or simply close the window to go back to normal.
Figure 1. With the e-mail pinned on top, you can drag and drop all day without actively switching windows.
Situation #2. Roll Up Plus Pin on Top
Sometimes that pinned window gets in the way, however, and you need a quick peek below. You can always minimize the window, but then you must tap back on the taskbar to maximize it. Of course, it's not far to move your pen to get to the taskbar but when it's the fiftieth time you've done it this morning it gets tiresome. Far better is to tap AWM's roll up icon to roll the window up like a window shade so only its title bar shows. Now you can see everything below it. If you want to work with lower window (make it active), and a rolled up window disappears behind the active one, simply pin the window on top and then roll it up. It is very convenient when you, for example, write E-mail and need to check a calendar.

Situation #3. Transparent Input Panel
The Handwriting Input in Tablet PC is a great advantage. The upgrade to Windows Service Pack 2 (SP2) delivers a special upgrade for Tablet users that completely reworked handwriting-to-text translation. The handwriting input is done through a floating Input Panel that grows in size as you write. But making this Input Panel transparent is a real pleasure. With Actual Window Manager you can make any window transparent if you want, but you can also set rules so specific windows are transparent all the time!
