Disable Aero Shake in Windows 7 and 8

Posted In Windows - By Techtiplib on Friday, May 4th, 2012 With No Comments »

One of the features that can come in handy is Aero Shake. If you’re moving fast, sometimes you accidentally minimize all open windows. That’s annoying. Here’s how to disable the Aero Shake feature in Windows 7 and 8 with a Registry tweak.

Click and hold the title bar and shake it left and right.

Then all other windows that are open will be minimized.

Note: Before making any tweaks to the Windows Registry, make sure you back it up.

First, click Start and Type: regedit in the Search box and hit Enter.

The Registry Editor opens. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows. Right click on Windows >> New >> Key.

Name the new key Explorer.

Now right click an empty area in the right pane. Select New >> DWORD (32-bit) Value.

Name it NoWindowMinimizingShortcuts.

Now right click the new DWORD Value you just created and select Modify.

Change the Value Data field to 1 and click OK.

Now, log off your system and log back on and Aero Shake is disabled. You can Restart your system, but don’t need to, just log off and back on again.

This Registry hack also works in Windows 8 Consumer Preview.
