What's the best window manager for Mac?

I'm a neat freak and would like to keep my workspace organised, so I'm looking for the best window manager available for Mac (MacOS / Mac OS X). This can be both a free or a paid app.

    Magnet for Mac

    Keep your workspace organized

    Honestly, I don't think there is a "best", but this one is pretty awesome, affordable, and usually ranks in the Top 5 Top Paid apps on the App Store. I use it and it's combo of using either keyboard shortcuts and/or grid system is great.
    Magnet for Mac is really easy to use. Be on the look out for times when they have the app on sale for $1. It is definitely worth it.

    This is one of the few software that I actually paid for when I was a student. It's "Magnet for Mac" on steroids. I use shortcuts like a ⌘+option+, to put a window on left half of the screen, ⌘+option+. for right half, ⌘+option+control+, to move a window to the left desktop, and etc. You can customize anything, and even make macros.

    Great pick for the hardcore users that are looking for something that's usually only available on Linux, but now on MacOS.
  8. This was the first app I looked for and actually paid for when I moved over from a PC to a Mac. Been using it ever since. That's 5 years and counting! It just works.

    Keyboard Maestro is a robust and feature-packed app for Mac and can serve as a great tool for enhanced Mac experience. I am not sure if you will find this as a good window manager though.

    Automated window management for Mac ✨

    Remembers and restores layouts! I have one setup for work and it launches all the relevant apps and places them perfectly.
    This is totally underrated.

    Window management application

    Programmable with simple configuration options, free and open source.
  15. Easy to use and intuitive. Pretty much the regular window dragging controls but when incorporated with a button push or two, you fully utilize your screen's realestate easily. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYpGo_g0n88
