    i remember installing a program that snaps my windows. now it's starting to annoy the hell out of me and i don't know where it is in my applications folder.

    i have posted a screenshot of how it looks when it wants to 'snap' a window.

    Have a look at Activity Monitor ( Applications / Utilities / ) and select All Processes and sort by Name to see what the culprit may be.

    image below uses sorting by CPU as an example

    If you still unsure after that, press CMD+A to select all process and CMD+C to copy them to the clipboard and paste them via CMD+V in your reply.

    i figured it out...

    it's the better touch tool, but now.. i can't go into preferences. i've deleted and re-installed as well. it's not showing up anywhere.

    edit: i remember editing the preferences so the icon wouldn't show up at the top. how do i completely reset this program?



    is there anyway i can launch preferences using terminal?

    got it. nvm
