Windows 7 Trick

I'm sure some of you, if not all of you, out there already know this but it's a neat trick in Windows 7 I accidentally discovered. So lets say you have multiple windows open such as 4 folders, a few windows of web browsers, a .pdf file, etc.. and you want to minimize all of the windows except for 1. Simply click and hold on the title bar of the window you want open and shake it left and right a few times and it will auto minimize every screen but the one your holding.

Pretty neat IMO :)

EDIT:: Also if you shake that one screen again, it will re-open all of the windows.
