How to Disable Aero Shake (Another Method) in Windows 7?

As we recently saw the Aero Shake feature can be disabled by enabling the “Turn off Aero Shake window minimizing mouse gesture” option in the Group Policy Editor, or by creating the NoWindowMinimizingShortcuts registry value. Here’s another way to disable Aero Shake using the registry.

Disabling Aero Shake using the “DisallowShaking” value

  1. Start the Registry Editor (regedit.exe)
  2. Navigate to the following branch:
  3. Create a new DWORD (32-bit) value named DisallowShaking
  4. Set the value data of DisallowShaking to 1.
  5. Exit the Registry Editor.
