One of the more annoying features introduced to Windows over the years was the shake to minimize everything feature. Although I can see situations where minimizing everything might be useful, there’s never once been a scenario what I’ve used this feature intentionally. Rather about twice a week I accidentally minimize everything on all three monitors because I moved a window and apparently shook it.
For whatever reason, I just dealt with it until now. Even though it’s something I knew you could turn off if you dug deep enough, I just never bothered. But today seemed to be one of those days where it just kept happening, so I figured it was time to deal with it once and for all. That is, until I switch computers or reinstall Windows and have to remember to disable it again…
If you’re comfortable editing the registry yourself you can navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced where you will then add a new DWORD called DisallowShaking. Set the value of it to 1.
And that’s it, you’re done!
