#1621: Scrolledge

I work on a laptop with a screen small enough to be just about portable. It allows me to set up multiple desktops, but I can’t get used to having documents that I have to scour some unseen space to retrieve.

Today’s invention is therefore to modify a desktop manager program so that when a window is partly hidden by the physical edge of the screen, a scrollbar should magically appear at that edge (where the red > is pointing).

This would allow me to scroll up and down within, say, my Inbox, to see what new messages have arrived etc -without having to drag the whole thing into view.
