Have too many open windows on your desktop? Need a fast way to minimize all of them except the one you are currently using? Give it a shake!
Go to the title bar of the window you wish to keep, right click and hold and shake the window with your mouse. After a few shakes, all of the unused windows will minimize automatically! Then you can access files or icons on your desktop without having to minimize each one individually. Once you are done and want all of the widows maximized, just shake the window again and, bam! They are all maximized again! If some out there think this is just too exciting, using the key combination of windows key and home key will do the same thing, though very blandly.
