As a part of an upcoming Windows 10 update, Microsoft will retire a divisive tab minimizing feature that first landed with Windows 7.

As indicated by the newest preview build, the corporate will soon disable ‘Shake to Minimize’ functionality in Windows 10, which allows users to attenuate all windows except one by selecting the specified tab and moving the mouse quickly back and forth.

While some users may mourn the loss of the feature, which is handy for clearing out a multitude of windows, others find it's triggered too easily by natural mouse movements and can be glad to ascertain the rear of it.

The Shake to attenuate feature in Windows 10 - also referred to as Aero Shake - isn't particularly well-publicized by Microsoft, albeit it's existed within the company’s operating systems since Windows 7.

Many users, then, were likely unaware of its existence and doubtless relied heavily on the Win + M keyboard shortcut or the minimize all option within the Windows 10 taskbar to perform an identical function.

There is currently no other Windows 10 feature, however, that permits the user to attenuate all windows with the exception of 1.

Although Microsoft might yet plan to give the feature a stay of execution, the change is currently set to require effect with subsequent Windows 10 feature update, which is predicted to land a while in spring next year.

In the meantime, users that want to disable the feature manually can do so via the Group Policy Editor or Windows Registry (although, as always, the registry should only be edited by advanced users).
