Posted on: June 14th, 2013 by No Comments



If you find yourself run multiple programs simultaneously and your desktop is get extremely cluttered, this windows feature could be your solution. Wanting to minimize all the other windows except the one you are currently working with can be a pain in previous versions of Windows. Now with Windows 7’s “Shake” feature you can have a little fun and accomplish your goal quickly with one simple step. Click and hold the title bar of the window you want to keep on the desktop; while still holding the title bar, shake it quickly back and forth until all of the other windows minimize to the taskbar. Then let go. To make them return, shake the title bar again. We are aware that there are other key combinations that will accomplish this; however they are boring and old. Have fun and happy computing!
