    Default Closing your windows in slow-motion.
    This is an easy little trick you can do right now if you wanted to.

    This will make your windows close in slow-mo.

    To do this to a window, all you have to do is hold this Shift button while clicking the minimize button, and your window closes in slow-mo.

    This isn't permanent, but happens every time you hold shift+click minimize.

    Addon: Open up terminal, and type in killall Dock. Don't press enter yet. Open a window and minimize it in slow-mo. Before it is fully minimized, click on the terminal window and click enter. The window will freeze in a disformed shape.

    I have an iBook G3 that'll do that without having to do anything at all. No ram, no speed.

    haha, that's great until you try to go back and use that window again. i had to quit firefox and reopen it to get it back.

    haha my thoughts exactly. its funny that we buy the most powerful machines so everything runs lightning fast, then develop little tricks like this to make things as slow as ever. its a fun tip though, ill probably pass it along to my friends.

    you should be able to click your minimize button and bring it back

    note: you will have to guess where it was originally to find it
