How to Turn On or Off Aero Shake on Windows 11?

Aero Shake feature was first introduced in Windows 7 by Microsoft. This minimizes all opened app windows on your desktop except the one you’re holding with your mouse. To minimize all the applications except one, hold the title of an application and shake it from the mouse. That’s it; all other opened windows will minimize automatically. Simply shake again to restore the minimized windows to their original location.

Aero Shake is an amazing feature, if you want to look on the desktop without minimizing or closing applications. It is known as “Title bar window shake” on Windows 11 and remains turned off by default. However, if you want to use it, you need to enable it.
