This article describes steps to enable or disable Title bar window shake or “Aero Shake” Windows 11.

First introduced in Windows 7, Title bar window shake allows users to grab a title bar and shake it to minimize all other windows in the background.

It is easy if you haven’t used the Title bar window shake before. You grab the app’s window you want to keep open by selecting its title bar and holding down the left mouse button.

While holding the app’s windows, shake the mouse, and all other windows will minimize in the background. Then, hold down the same window and shake again to restore all the minimized windows in the background.
