When I used to run this on my PC, I could move the player to the left or right and the other windows would collapse to essentially make it a split screen with slingbox on one side and whatever else on the other, and makes it easy to keep working.
This Mac version seems to just be in the way all of the time while I'm trying to do other work. I'm seemingly minimizing it or moving it to the right or left to access a window behind it.
Is there any way around this, or a setting to get this to be more usuable? Thanks
What I understand from your post, is that you would like to know how to dock the SlingPlayer for Mac to the left or to the right side of the screen.
In this case, I would recommend you to check the user guide for the SlingPlayer, that way, you can get all the information about the software and its features.
