A new version of XLefty is available for download. The new version improves the beta features a bit and it fixed some minor bugs.
Mac-like caption buttons
The portable tool XLefty allows you to move the caption buttons (close, maximize, minimize buttons) at the top of each window from the right side to the left side, much like you may knew it from a Mac.
Useful for lefties
This tool should also be very useful for lefties, who might want the buttons on the left, because if you are also using a mouse for lefties then you always have to move the mouse across the entire screen to close/minimize/maximize windows. That’s why it’s called XLefty, it’s good for lefties and makes Windows 7 look like Mac OS X.

About XLefty (taken from PAD file)
XLefty is a program that can help to mimic the look of a Mac by moving the Windows caption buttons (minimize, maximize, close) from the right side to the left side. Lefties might find this tool particular handy, because they no longer have to move the mouse over the entire screen to minimize/maximize/close windows. Also, users that are used to the UI of a Mac will appreciate this little tool.
Move caption buttons from right to left,
Move caption buttons of foreground window only,
Minimize program on startup,
Approve specific windows ONLY (use the target arrow to select a window that should have the caption buttons on the left). Approved windows will be remembered!
Thank you for this programm
How do I put caption buttons move of The Right Side?
A little note: This makes it hard to browse with chrome or use Adobe programs (havn’t tried other ones). http://i.imgur.com/kBpUu.jpg
Well play except fot Firefox 4 b12… ;)
I like this, but it has some problems. 1) It makes the tabs in Chrome written backwards. 2) When I’m browsing files, it makes the file icon go to the left and the name to the right. 3) With Internet Explorer 9, it makes it hard to press the back button because it goes in front of it.
How to add exceptions?
For safari it makes the bar ontop go black, its very annoying. how do i remove xlefty!
It makes other problems also, for example, the WMP interface practically disappears and go all black , all the controls disappear . Too bad because if you could add exceptions to program, it could be the best program of its kind .
I finally figured that out , the exclusions and the rest , now I can say that is the best program of its kind
really good, just like Mac! :)
How do I specify window exceptions? I would like to enable this for all windows except for those which don’t work so well. Is this possible?
