Quickly Minimise All But One Window

Here’s a quick tip for Windows users.

You might rarely require this tip but it’s a feature in more recent versions of Windows that could come in handy one day.

If you want to minimise all but one particular window you don’t have to go through each and every window and click the minimise button. All you need to do is hover your mouse cursor over its title bar, hold down the left mouse button and shake the mouse left and right.

All of the other windows should magically disappear! This outcome is worth knowing just in case you accidentally invoke this function. I know I have done it a few times by accident and it is a shame that you can’t toggle this “gesture” in Windows nor its sensitivity.
