I just noticed something in Windows 7 after 3 years.

Thread Starter 
When I move the mouse to the lower right hand corner, it hides all the open windows and shows my desktop. I never knew this after using Windows for 3 years.biggrin.gif

I can't believe you never did it by accident and thought "where have all my windows gone?" biggrin.gif

Wow 3 years? You must rarely use your comp. I first noticed it by accident. Found it useful when I had many windows open or when installing software that doesn't allow windows to be minimized. Don't poop yourself when you find out what windows+tab does

Can't believe you missed it. The Aero-snap(?) is by far one of my favorite Windows 7 features.

It's the aero-peek. Out of what does anyone actually utilize this feature for?

Actually I touched it with my mouse a few times while the mouse was down there while I opened up the calender, adjusting the clock ect., and thought it was the videocard driver crashing back to the desktop.
