Tuesday Tech Tip: Shake that window

Windows 8 logoYou’ve got half a dozen windows open on your desktop and you want to minimize all but one of them. Previously, I would have done a Win+M and then clicked on the one I wanted in the task bar. But, there’s an easier way. Click on the title bar of the window you want and give the window a little shake with your mouse. All of the other windows will minimize leaving just the one you want. Admittedly, this is a but harder with a laptop’s touchpad. (I’ve tested this as far back as Vista and it works just fine.)
