This utility for managing windows offers only two features: the ability to reduce a window to a tiny strip and to make the window transparent. That might not seem like a big deal, but considering how many times a day you minimize and restore windows just to access what's under them, WindowShade can save you a lot of time. With its handy controls, all you have to do is double-click the title bar. The miniprogram lets you adjust controls and window opacity. As you'd expect, it doesn't take up a large amount of system resources. People who switch among folders a lot may find WindowShade useful.

WindowShade lets you hide the windows that are obscuring your view temporarily--completely hassle-free and unobtrusive for your eye. Just by double-clicking the window titlebar, or pressing the Shift or Control key twice, the window will roll into just the window title bar, letting you see and interact with the windows located below the current window. Another feature WindowShade offers is Make Window Transparent.
