- Aero Peek
- Taskbar Peek
- Aero Snap
- Jump Lists
Aero Peek is an astonishing feature of Windows 7 Operating System. This can enhance the graphical interface of the Operating System. If you have many windows open on the desktop, Aero Peek opens a window that you want to focus on. At the same time, all the other open windows are turned into transparent glass sheets. Aero Peek can also work on the desktop. If you roll your mouse over 'Show Desktop' control at the far right of the taskbar, then all windows on the desktop turn transparent. This will allow the entire desktop to be seen.
Taskbar Peek is actually applied Aero Peek technology on taskbar thumbnails. If you roll your mouse over an application button on Windows 7 taskbar, thumbnails of open windows associated with the particular program can pop-up. If you roll your mouse over one of these pop-up thumbnails, the full corresponding window on the desktop will then come to the forefront, and all other windows will become transparent.
