Since you're here, let me ask you a question : when the windows have been minimized, when should Dumdum "forget" about those windows ? I mean, if i shake a window, then restore a few by hand, close some others, work for 3 hours and then shake the same window again, i suppose it should minimize every other windows (instead of restoring the ones that have been minimized earlier). I hope i'm clear
I don't have a certain answer for that, but this is my understanding...
When you use the windows taskbar's Stack, Cascade or Side by Side feature, it will provide an Undo button until you change something.
So, in my opinion, your best plan is to remember *what* you minimized the last time, restoring it on the next shake if everything is in the same state as before.
To explain that a little better, I'll put it this way: If the same window is open, and all of the others are minimised and not closed, restore the windows.
This allows you to, for example, open your mail inbox, shake other windows away, open a composer window, send the message and return to your inbox.
Then, you can shake the window again to restore the old windows.
I'd even go as far to say that you can restore some of the other windows, use them and minimise them again.
As long as you shake the original window, with all of the originally minimised windows in the same state, restore them.
What do you think? If somebody opens extra windows and shakes one of them, he is more likely to be wanting THEM to be minimized, rather than restore the old ones to add to the mess.
That's my logic, and it is, as far as I know, the same behaviour of the other taskbar functions.
