Description (of the application) :

During our work, many times we need to keep a small window of a program always on top of the desktop screen. This program may show network connection, mail status, auto updating messages etc. Now when we are working on some full screen program like editor, browser etc., this small window block the view of the part of the editor or browser.

Instead of closing or removing the small window, I wanted it to move aside from view when I hover the mouse cursor on it. This way I can easily view the blocked part of the editor or browser.

I could not find any such program by Googling, so I made "Move Aside Please".

Benefits (of using it) :

The window automatically moves up or down, when the mouse cursor hover over it. We can set the window titles which needs to be moved. Instead of moving the window, we can reduce its opacity, i.e. make it semi-transparent.

Anti-Virus reports malware (what to do?) :

Delete the exe and it's folder. There is nothing we can do as this is false alert and we do not have resource to request all Anti-Virus companies to update their database. Similar problem is faced by small developers worldwide, check below links,

Nir's Blog

You can see the last scan result of the exe from Virus Total web site and will find that major Anti-Virus report it as clean.

Similar applications (if any) :

Freeware (why?) :

As a developer, we work for commercial ventures in our day jobs, and code something more personally interesting in our spare time. We get more pleasure in making the application, which in turn helps us in our day to day activity and may also benefit others. We use freeware software made by other developers, so we feel happy if we are able to make small contribution to this freeware community.

Hope you will find this software useful.
