Peek and Shake
  • Peek gives you the power of X-ray vision, so you can peer past all your open windows straight to the Windows 7 desktop
  • Simply roll over the small box on the far right edge of the taskbar—and watch open windows instantly turn transparent, revealing all your hidden icons and gadgets
  • Ever need to cut through a cluttered desktop and quickly focus on a single window? Just click a pane and give your mouse a shake. Voila! Every open window except that one instantly disappears. Jiggle again—and your windows are back
