Sure, resizing windows on your screen does not exactly take a degree in computer science. When it comes to resizing them to a specific size though, that is where things get a little more tricky. Just like with many problems, there are plenty of ways to find the solution. One solution is the freeware program called WinSizer.

So what is the WinSizer all about? Here is what the developers have to say:

WinSizer resizes the windows of popular Internet browsers such as Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera, or any other window class. Its purpose is to help web site and software designers, who typically work on a high-resolution screen, to assess their user interfaces as they would appear on smaller screens. Built-in screen sizes include 640×480, 800×600, 1024×768; you can also specify any custom size.

When resizing the windows, WinSizer takes the size and position of the Windows taskbar into account and subtracts that from the requested screen size. This mirrors Microsoft Windows behavior in that it reduces the available desktop area for the window. For example, a typical 800×600 screen setup has actually an available desktop area of 800×572 once the taskbar is subtracted.

This is one handy and small freeware download for anybody who wants to develop applications or Web sites at different resolutions.
