February 04, 2013

Snap, Peek and Shake are features of Windows Aero that all you to easily manage and organize your windows.

Snap

Snap is a quick way to resize open windows, simply by dragging them to the edges of your screen.

Depending on where you drag a window, you can make it expand vertically, take up the entire screen, or appear side-by-side with another window.

Peek

Peek allows you to peer past all your open windows straight to the Windows 7 desktop. Simply point to the end of the taskbar and watch open windows instantly turn transparent, revealing all your hidden icons and gadgets.

To quickly reveal a buried window, point to its taskbar thumbnail. Now only that window shows on the desktop.

Shake

Ever need to cut through a cluttered desktop and quickly focus on a single window? Just click the top of a pane and give your mouse a shake. Every open window except that one instantly disappears.
