If you ever find yourself with multiple programs open at the same time it’s easy for things to get a bit cluttered and confusing Here is a great, and super fun, tip for when you’re working in one program and want to minimize all the other windows — before Windows 7 you had to minimize them individually.
With Windows 7’s “shake” feature, though, you can minimize every window except the one in which you’re currently working — in a single 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.
You can also do this by pressing the Window key-Home key combination — but that isn’t as fun as the click & shake! 😎
