If you are like me who love to open and work simultaneously on different windows but don’t want to go through the annoying part of minimizing other windows one by one, then this will do the trick. In previous Windows versions you have to minimize them one by one… it’s a pain especially if you have tons of windows open. Good thing Windows 7 has a feature called Aero Shake where you can just easily shake the active window left and right to minimize all windows except the active window or the one you are shaking.
You can also restore them by performing the same procedure.
You can also do this using keyboard combinations. press Windows key + Home. But personally, I don’t do this– it’s not much fun 😀
