Silly Windows 7 Mouse Shortcut

I just found out you can shake a window with the mouse and all other windows are minimized. If you shake it again all the other windows come back.

Interesting :-)
For me it's almost impossible to do it with my trackball. Don't know if it's the ball or me.

Maybe this should be seen in the light of touchscreens. A "rub-out" gesture could make some sense. But then again, I tried it on an old-fashioned touchscreen but that's virtually impossible.

I've tried it on two touchscreen machines and it's very difficult to do. I also tried it with the rubber nub on a Lenovo laptop and it worked but was quite difficult. So it only seems viable with the mouse.
