How to Disable Aero Shake in Windows 10

Windows 10 comes with the two features are called "Aero Snap" and "Aero Shake" which allow to arrange windows and manage their position and size. I've wrote about Aero Snap in a previous post. Today's post explains how to disable Aero Shake.

Aero Shake allows the user quickly minimize all opened windows except the current active window by shaking its title bar. Shaking the title bar again will restore all the minimized windows. Disabling Aero Shake could be helpful to prevent mistakenly minimizing other opened windows while moving a window.
