Aero Shake

At a Glance
  • Generic Company Place Holder Aero Shake

Windows 7 lets you minimize every window except one, just by shaking. Click and hold the title bar of any open window, then shake your mouse back and forth a few times. All the other windows will funnel down to the taskbar. Shake the lone window again and its counterparts reappear. Lifehacker's free Aero Shake utility adds shake-and-bake windowing to Vista and XP. It's not quite as smooth as what you get from 7, but it's still a nice little amenity--and the price is right.
