Disable Aero Shake in Windows 10, Windows 8 and Windows 7

Disable Aero Shake in Windows 10, Windows 8 and Windows 7

In Windows 7, Microsoft introduced two new ways to arrange windows and manage their size/position and window state. The two features are called "Aero Snap" and "Aero Shake" respectively. The first one arranges and resizes windows by moving them to the left, top or right edge of the screen. The second one minimizes all windows when you shake the active window. I never liked these two changes and found them annoying because it is easy to accidentally move a window to the edge. Some time ago, I wrote how to disable the Aero Snap feature. That trick actually disables the Aero Shake feature too. Today I will share with you a trick to disable only Aero Shake with a registry tweak.
