    This is the greatest thing ever.......
    for some reason or another, I accidentally held down shift while I was minimizing a window and I saw one of the coolest but most pointless operations to date, on this computer or any for that matter. Try it out, its shift + minimize window.

    Note: It only works if you hold down shift and click on the minimise button with the cursor. It doesn't work when using the keyboard shortcut.

    it also works by double-clicking on the top of the window to minimise, which I always do as opposed to using the minimise button

    Try holding down the ctrl+shift key at the same time while minimizing the window... ;-)

    This also works in reverse....eg: click the minimized windows icon in the Dock whilst holding down the shift key at the same time.... :biohazard

    Steve Jobs used that when he introduced OS X. The point was to show off the cool effect in slow-mo. It is that simple.

    Open up Terminal and type:

    killall Dock

    Don't press enter yet, but keep Terminal and Safari open and CTRL+SHFT+Minimize Safari then quickly activate Terminal and hit enter to send the command.

    Awesome.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.
