Windows® 7 Offers Enhanced Aero® Peek
Although this tool was present in the earlier editions of Windows, it needed to be enabled.
In Windows 7, Aero Peek's new fade out feature fades out the inactive window on the desktop by highlighting the window you are hovering over. This results in getting the peek preview of the peek window but you can also get the full preview if you look on the monitor.
Without minimizing all the windows you can have the quick view at the desktop. The enhanced Aero Peek is included in the Home Premium, Professional, and Ultimate editions of Windows 7. It is user friendly, as it alleviates the problem faced by the user.
The user who works on modem operating system often complains about the hassle of juggling of too many windows. Aero Peek helps the user by showing the desktop field in the right of the taskbar and displays the outline of the currently open Windows which is the cause of chaos.
It provides you with the power of X-ray vision which allows you to peer past all your open Windows to the desktop. You just have to point to the taskbar which will reveal all your hidden icons and gadgets. By pointing the taskbar thumbnail, you can easily reveal a buried window. To access the feature press Win+Space (the Windows logo key and the space bar) and all of your open windows instantly turn transparent, revealing whatever was on your desktop - wallpaper, icons, and gadgets.

You can easily maximize windows by pulling it to the top of the screen. You can preview what you are doing with an Aero Peek style which make it easier to bounce away the “sticky” edges.
