    Funny feature.

    But I have to tell that it doesn't work with "sub-windows".
    If you have a software with multiple windows it only work on the main windows.
    I tried today with this type of windows, and it doesn't worked, I searched why until I understand that I must shake the main windows of the software.

    Hello LePoilu,

    When shaking the sub-window (ex: Open with) from the main program window, it should clear the desktop of all open windows except for the windows that belong to that main program window. Is this what you are seeing?

    You right, I expected that the desktop will be cleared as if I shake the main windows. As you can't reduce the main windows and keep the sub-windows in front, shaking sub-windows should have the same result that shaking the main windows.

    It can be usefull (I guess) because when you have (one or more) subwindows open you may need a clear view of your desktop, and your first step will be shaking the first windows you have in front of you.

    This is awesome feature. It'll be very helpful for me! Didn't know about this. Thanks!

    But like LePoilu said it doesn't work perfectly with 'sub-windows'. Ex. when I press now ctrl+o (I'm in maximised Opera browser) and shake the 'Open' window, Opera should dissapear to let me view my desktop.
