So I installed Windows 7 as my main OS at work a few days ago just to play around in a “Production Environment” and this morning I ran into the strangest, yet most useful feature yet. Apparently in an Aero enabled PC with Windows 7 if you grab and shake your foreground window it will automatically minimize all the windows behind it, clearing all the noise. Once you are done, you can get all your windows back by shaking the screen again. Very useful! yet it can get annoying, I have several times now shaken my screen in anger or while waiting for something (who hasn’t?), and everything drops down. Check out the vid if you don’t believe me.
