This tiny little utility is for people that open a lot of programs at once and then find them self lost, or suddenly want an icon on the desktop, and find that all the open program have all the icons covered. When you push the curser to the left side, [or any other edge-your choice] all the current windows will minimize. If you did this by mistake, put the curser to the same corner, and all the minimized windows will be restored. When you start this program, it sits in the tray, the far right of the taskbar. If you double click on the icon, you will find the options menu. From here you can set the corner that minimizes everything hide the options, or close the program.

While this does work as promised, I don't think that the ease of minimizing all the programs at once is worth $15.00
