Aero Snap lets you resize a window by dragging it to the edge of the screen. Aero Shake allows you to minimize all other windows by shaking an open window. These features may be useful to some and a problem for others. You can quickly disable these two features.
You may use the “Print Screen” function to capture images and insert them in publications, e-mails, presentations, etc. By adding one key when you capture the image you can restrict the capture to the dialog box only vs. capturing the entire screen.
It is very easy to accidentally drag and drop items into a new location without realizing it (i.e. an e-mail folder in Outlook). If you turn on the ‘ClickLock’ feature on your mouse it can help eliminate any accidental errors. When ‘ClickLock’ is on, you have to click a second time to drop the item in its new location. ‘ClickLock’ settings are different in Windows XP and Windows 7, see the appropriate documentation and video for your operating system.
