Aero Shake feature toggle is finally coming to Windows 10 Settings

Windows 10 Aero Shake

References spotted in the preview builds had suggested that a
Windows 10 update will retire the unpopular ‘Aero Shake’
feature, which was introduced with Windows 7 to improve the
multitasking experience. In response to user feedback,
Microsoft is now making Aero Shake optional in Windows 10,
starting with version 21H2.

In the latest preview build, Microsoft is testing a new
experimental flag that will allow you to turn off the ‘Shake to
Minimize’ aka Aero Shake.

For those unaware, Windows 10’s Aero Shake feature allows users
to minimize all windows except the primary window by selecting
the desired app and moving the mouse quickly back and forth.

Windows 10 Aero Shake settings

Aero Shake feature is particularly not well maintained or
advertised by Microsoft, even though it has existed in the
operating system for more than a decade now. By bringing Aero
Shake to the Settings app, Microsoft will be able to better
advertise the feature and allow users to turn it off if they
don’t like it.

The change is currently set to take effect with the next big
Windows 10 update, which is expected to start rolling out in
the second half of 2021. Since version 21H1 is a minor update,
it’s likely that this change will be included in Windows 10 Sun
Valley ’21H2′.

In the meantime, you can disable the feature manually via the
Group Policy Editor or Windows Registry.

In addition to Aero Shake toggle in the Settings app, Microsoft
is also working on new multitasking capabilities for Windows
10. For example, a new multitasking toggle “Snap further away
from screen edge” was recently spotted in the preview builds.

Likewise, new touch controls and gesture settings are also
coming later this year, which would be handy for tablet or
2-in-1 device users.
