Aero Peek is a new feature introduced in Windows 7. If you have many windows open on your desktop, its quite easy to lose track of them.

Aero Peak lets you ‘peak’ behind all the windows so that you can have a look at your desktop, should you wish to access any gadgets or shortcuts. It does so by making all the open windows go transparent. To do so, you simply have to move your cursor to the extreme right part of your taskbar and hold it there. Or else click Win+Space.
