I have been researching and trying to find out ways of replicating this feature myself as a personal project (listed in the given link below). They call it a Picture-in-Picture / Maximizer (PiP/Maximizer). Does anyone have any ideas? The only method I could think of is by hooking into each process seperately and forcing a resize, but I bet there is a better route of doing so. https://solidice.com/keyclone/commands.html

Oh sorry.

I will use the link as my example, they take five running World of Warcraft applications and display them all on the screen at once. But they use each window and put them in their own defined region, and the main running window takes up most of the space.

Like so:

I guess if I can get the hDC's I can hook glFlip (or the DirectX equivlent) and blit from the other hDC's to a local bitmap, then scale them down to the defined sizes, and finally blit the bitmaps to the screen and call the real glFlip.

But it would probably be slow...
