Enable or Disable Aero Shake in Windows 11

Microsoft offers different ways to help you show desktop on Windows 11 easily. And one of them is known as Aero Shake. Aero Shake is one of the many features introduced with Windows 7 and continues to be part of Windows 11 as well. Aero Shake lets you quickly minimize all opened windows except the current active window by shaking its title bar. Shaking the title bar again will restore all the minimized windows. Microsoft is disabling the feature by default in Windows 11 but there’s an option to enable it.
