WindowHelper is a tool that can help you manage the windows within MapInfo Pro.

Some of the features in this tool are: cloning any window, storing the size and position of certain window types, zooming to certain view of your map and the ability to restore a closed window.

WindowHelper has a number of new features such as a Zoom Next, Previous, First and Last features for all your map windows, new redesigned buttons and a number of new menu items in the shortcut menus in MapInfo Pro.

You can find a complete list of the new features in the documentation for WindowHelper.

Install WindowHelper

You install WindowHelper by downloading the file. Extract the files into a new folder or into the folder with your other MapInfo tools.

It’s not recommended to put this tool on a network drive as it is using a number of .NET resources that not easily can be run from a network drive. So make sure you put the tool on your local hard drive.

As this tool takes advantage of docking capability added in MapInfo Pro 10.5 you need to be running MapInfo Pro 10.5.2 or later to be able to use WindowHelper.
