‘Aero Shake’ Feature in Windows 7 For Desktop Clearing
Surprisingly, a really cool feature of Windows 7 called ‘Aero Shake’ has gone virtually unnoticed amidst all of the hype. It is not groundbreaking or anything, but having the ability to minimize all background windows with a simple shake of the mouse seems like a smart, useful idea to me.
What Aero Shake does is allows you to shake your application windows furiously, to quickly minimize all other windows, at the same time experiencing a seizure in your hand.When you want to focus on the task at hand on a desktop cluttered with windows, just grab the window bar of the app you want to work in and shake it back and forth to clear away the rest. Another shake will restore the background apps to their former state. You can also drag and drop a window to the edge of the screen to maximize it, and click on its top bar again to restore its previous size.
It’s a pretty cool feature that I can see some practical use for it, but I think they need to work on the sensitivity so users don’t wear out their desk.
