Windows 7: Minimize/Maximize windows with mouse?

Minimize/Maximize windows with mouse?

I know the hotkeys for minimizing windows are Win + Up or Win + Down

Any idea how I can maximize/minimize windows using my wireless mouse without having to manually click the minimize and maximize buttons?

Help would be appreciated.

I always just double-click the title bar, that will min / max it....



Edit: Or with windows 7 you can just drag the title bar to the top of the screen to maximize it and then drag it off the top of the screen to restore it to normal size....

Thanks, I didn't like dragging it, but double clicking works just fine on my W7 laptop.

Thanks for your help.

Double clicking the title bar does not minimize a window. It only takes it out of full screen mode, or puts it back.

There's always a right-click on the title bar that has a few options too.

Yup, you'll have to click somewhere to min/max a window.
