What is it called when you make the applications running show small above the desktop?

by on June 1, 2010

Q: I was online the other day & my hand, with the mouse in it, got bumped. The webpage I was on minimized & went off to the side at a 45 degree angle. I could then see my desktop with the webpage off to the side at an angle. What did I do? I just clicked & dragged it back to the foreground & everything was fine. How can I do this again? I thought it was pretty cool. I use Vista, if that helps.

    You are probably referring to Flip 3D and Flip. You can read more about it here http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/features/flip-3d.aspx?tabid=2&catid=1 Look for Flip and Flip3D on the left hand side.
