Shake your desktop free of clutter

If you frequently run multiple programs simultaneously, your desktop can get extremely cluttered with windows. This can get annoying if you're working on one program and want to minimize all the other windows -- in previous versions of Windows you had to minimize them individually.

Windows 7 - Shake your desktop free of clutter

With Windows 7's "shake" feature, though, you can minimize every window except the one in which you're currently working -- in a single step. Click and hold the title bar of the window you want to keep on the desktop; while still holding the title bar, shake it quickly back and forth until all of the other windows minimize to the taskbar. Then let go. To make them return, shake the title bar again.

You can accomplish the same thing by pressing the Window key-Home key combination -- although doing that is not nearly as much fun.

How much time do you spend searching for documents or other files on your computer network? Many studies have been made on this subject, but let's face it… just a few minutes a day adds up to a lot of time.

How much does this really cost? Here's an example based on just 5 minutes a day:

5 minutes a day x 5 days per week = 25 minutes a week

25 minutes x 50 work weeks per year = 1250 minutes (or almost 21 hours per year!)

Multiply that number by the average salary in your company and you'll quickly find that thousands of dollars are going to waste unnecessarily.

With Microsoft Windows 7, you can instantly find any documents on your computer or on a shared network drive right from the Start Menu...
