Aero Shake: How It Works and How to Disable It

Posted by Oluwajoba Odesanya In , , , | 1 comments»
The Aero Shake is a Windows 7 feature that I did not even know of in a long time. To know about what Aero Shake is, grab a window in your Windows 7 and shake it, all other windows will be minimized. That's a cool feature right?
It's very useful while you are multitasking. You have a couple of windows open and it gets to a point where you need to have only one window active; you can put the Windows Aero Shake feature to use instead of minimizing all other windows, then bringing up the one you want.

How to Disable Aero Shake
This is a registry hack and I do not recommend it to you if you don't even know what the windows registry is.
But, if you are a computer geek, let's go!

Open Regedit (Hold Down Windows key + R) type regedit and hit enter in the Run dialog box
Navigate to this key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows
Right Click on windows, go to Key and create a new DWORD(32-Bit) Value
Name it as NoWindowMinimizingShortcuts

Edit registry-disable aero shake

That's all. You need to log off and then log on again to see the changes.
