Got a little tip for ya. Do you ever get into Windows overload? Too many windows open and you need to focus on just the one you're working on? Click on the title bar of the window you want to keep, hold and shake. All other windows will be minimized and out of your way.
Do you just need to get to that icon on your desktop and everything is in the way? No need to minimize each window individually or even use the tip above. Just click the Windows key+D to get to your desktop without leaving your keyboard.
