Minimize all windows but focused

Postby legion1978 » Thu Feb 01, 2007 6:43 am

hi there sir..
this is something id like to see.. if possible ;)
can it be done so that alt+tab replacement minimizes all other window except for the one focused?
this concerns to system performance, when theres a lot of ram-eater apps (photoshop, corel, opera, fireworks etc) running simultaneously, specially quickly switched from one to the next...

*alttabthingy does minimize last focused window. that would do, except that it for itself takes too much ram for just a alttab with preview thing.
*i know one hotkey scripting-based app, but it minimizes ALL windows. that makes a real mess with hidden windows
*taskswitchXP forum response to someonelse askin for the same :"hit win+m, then hit alt+tab" --c'mon--
*i heard win 3.1 had such feature

is it possible? is it useful? just one more thing to think of huh ..
i know priority right now is wallpcycler, so its ok.. ill be around ;)

That's indeed a good suggestion and definetely possible.
I've put it on the todo list among the many other todo items ;)
