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. I found another way to disable Aero Shake, and this is a different registry edit.

Disabling Aero Shake using the "DisallowShaking" value

1. Click Start, type Regedit.exe

2. Navigate to the following branch:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ Advanced

3. Create a new DWORD (32-bit) value named DisallowShaking

4. Set the value data of DisallowShaking to 1.

5. Exit the Registry Editor.
