clicking the button bottom right will hide the glass outlines of your open windows , reclicking will show the windows again.

ok ive had a couple of days to give this issue some thought,
you have a couple of options,
1- close all your windows before hovering the cursor over the aero peek button, then when you hover over the aero peek button there will be no glass outlines showing.

2- set your windows to maximize, all of the open ones, when you hover the mouse on the aero peek button there will be no glass outlines showing on your desktop.
hope this helps.

I can do it by editing the images in the .msstyles
If you are using the default aero theme I can change that for you, using Windows Style Builder and post it here in a zip folder.
If you are using a custom theme you will need to ask the theme maker. It's not cool to change someone else work.
&
This will be a custom theme and you will need to do 1 of these 2 ways of Enabling custom themes for it to work.
Enabling Custom Themes - Windows 7
Or
Theme - How to Apply Custom Themes
This does remove the shadows from around Windows Explorer.
If this is something you want me to do I need a name for the theme.
Let me know.
