= Impossibility of minimizing multiple windows

Welcome to Windows 7.

[Edit 08/03/09: It is possible to right click on a thumbnail, usual window context menu appears there. But I still think it is very undiscoverable.]

  1. Right click and select Internet Explorer to have open another window.

  2. Also, right clicking a taskbar-pinned icon is really powerful. It gives a recent list of documents opened with that application to give you a faster experience.

  3. I disagree. Jump Lists don’t solve my problem. You can’t minimize multiple windows by left clicking OR right clicking.

  4. My apologies..I read your statement as Impossibility of opening multiple windows.

    Yes, I agree. There is no direct way of minimizing all windows of particular app. But this is what the “send feedback” button for. Open a request there.
