    Mac style window cascade


    On mac's I find the most useful feature is being able to press the middle buttons of the mouse and see all the windows and be able to select them straight away, however on windows 7 one of the features I like is being able to have all you windows open shown side by side, however what i'd like to know is there a shortcut for this, or could I assign it to my center mouse button?

    Hi Tim,

    You can just right click on the taskbar and check side by side, stacked or cascade.
    This is what you're talking about?

    Hello Tim and Welcome to the Seven Forums

    I think what you are describing is the Exposť feature

    There is a 3rd party add- on for Vista that claims to provide this functionallity

    Available Here ...

    http://lifehacker.com/software/expos...sta-235893.php

    Have not tried this but may also work in Windows 7

    I personally use an add-on for Flip3D which is M$ version of Exposť which allows Hot corner or mouse activation of Flip3D ( I personally do not use the mouse activation but it does work, I find I need all the mouse buttons for other purposes)

    The Add-on is Available here ...

    I have used the Expose for Vista in the past, was kind of buggy for me.

    I never heard of 3d Flip activator, but installed it and I like it. Has anyone had problems with the 3d activator in the past?

    Hi Iknewitwin7

    I've been using Flip3D Activator for a few weeks now on both Vista and various flavours of Windows 7, (including 6801 x64), without any issues.

    Only issue I've heard of with it is when someone set it to operate on a Left Mouse Button, and couldn't do anything that needed a left click , so you have to be careful when assigning Mouse buttons

    Other than that it's all good

    I use the top left corner "Hotspot" and find that wherever my mouse is I can switch windows quickly either using the task bar or Flip3D,

    It's also great for showing off when someone's watching you

    Now I wonder; who could've done such a silly thing as that?...

    Don't make the 3d flap be the middle button on your mouse. Can't throw nades in COD

    Nigel, why does Process Explorer say it's listening?
