What is this feature called and how do I use it? [Video]



At 1:28 the host of the product review demonstrates a feature he calls it "a macro view of all the apps you have open."

How do I do this?

A macro is a series of programming commands that are saved as an applet, which can then be called by using a hot key combination assigned to it.

I would imagine its main purpose with your particular touch mouse is to create gaming macros that can then be checked using the macro view function.

Obviously, you'll need to create a macro first to be able to use macro view.

In the video, the tutor explains how you can open three separate windows, which I would imagine is done by a macro written for this purpose. As I understand it, you invoke the macro view command by using three fingers to roll across the touch mouse to open the windows in macro view i.e. in view at the same time

Thank you for the input, but I'm not understanding what you posted.

All I want is to show all the open windows/applications on my screen at once. Just like what Is shown on the desktop screen at 1:28 - 1:33.

Just use three fingers to lightly touch the mouse and run them up and down the surface of the mouse to view multiple windows in macro view or hide the windows and view the desktop.

I should have already told you that I'm not using the Microsoft Touch Mouse. My bad.

Is this feature only available to those with the Touch Mouse?

Welcome to Seven forums BTW. I don't see it as a Windows Snap feature, would be nice though.
