Window managing on Macs leaves much to be desired. This app has solved my issues with macOS's lack of built-in features since day one. Though there may be somewhat cheaper options, the constant updates and reliability of the app continue to make me a happy customer. (The app goes on sale so frequently that you really can't go wrong)

This has been sitting on my status bar since forever, always remind myself to use the keyboard shortcut, but never actually use it. (Or maybe unconsciously been using it)

I'm not sure if this is a functionality you are referring to, but you could try using Magnet to achieve what you want.

We've seen a few different tools for Windows-esque window management on Mac over the years, but none of those ever fit well with my workflow. Magnet is an app that's been around for a while, but a few recent updates have finally made it the app I need.
