Description

Browsing through be.com website I stumbled upon a hidden feature added in BeOS 5.0.1 :) https://web.archive.org/web/20010105090500/http://www.be.com:80/support/updates/fivedotohdotone.html

Minimize all windows feature. Hold down Option and double-click a window title bar.

This already works. :)
The windows hide only after releasing the OPT key, though. I guess that's related to OPT being the S&T shortcut. Close this issue or does anyone see a way to hide right after the double-click, even if the OPT key is still pressed. Right now, it feels a bit awkward.

This doesn't work for me. At least in VMware.

I tried it in a virtual machine under Virtualbox. It resulted in two windows being stacked. So yes, it seems to collide with S&T.

I see no need to involve the mouse when showing the Desktop. A command similar to Windows's [WIN]+[D] to show/hide the desktop is better.
