Our staff loved this one. Personally I've never used the gesture much - too much in the habit of Win+D then Alt+Tab - but people were at first disbelieving and then endlessly amused. Says something about school staff that, perhaps.

So for the entertainment and delight of your peers, here's ICT Tip 036 - Aero Shake.doc

Any monetary tips you get from people, let me know and I'll pass you my PayPal details. Not that you should be charging money for these anyway, of course - as I keep mentioning, you can steal, remix, reuse and redistribute, but knowledge should be free

    I forgot all about the shake...

    Also, Aero win+tab >>>> alt+tab

    Using WinKey + Tab instead of Alt+Tab is the Windows equivalent of sticking a spoiler and alloys on your Corsa, showing off for no functional gain

    Though when the time comes, it is probably the method I will write up as a tip, because people do love the shiny.

    I like to see what it is I'm flipping to. Especially when I have multiple tabs open, alt+tab counts internet as 1 thing, win+tab does them seperatly. [I think, for some reason aero won't enable on my normal account and I can't get into personalisation.]

    Huh, doesn't do that for me here (not that I'd want it to, with all my tabs it'd take me twenty minutes to get to the window I wanted). What is annoying, though, is that a single press of Alt+Tab switches to the last window, a single press of Win+Tab just shows a fancy 3D effect but doesn't switch to anything.

    IE does count each tab as a separate window for Aero Peek though, which is a bit annoying as well tbh - fills up too fast, I'd rather switch to the window and then to the tab. I will concede that that is entirely personal preference, though
