Well,

i spent a quite few hours of searching and coding and things like that until finally i can come up with this:

The desktop:

Posted Image Posted Image

And the desktop with AeroPeek Desktop Preview:

Posted Image Posted Image

And the download (installer zipped):

Here - ver0.2.2

How-to:
Click on the tray icon once: Desktop Preview becomes enabled
Click on twice and it becomes disabled.

Requirements:
- Windows XP/Vista
- .net framework 3.5

Known issue:
- Windows in compatibility mode can't be hidden - i have no idea why... :D

Expected development:
- Desktop Preview with grabbing one of the open windows which will remain visible. - Done

Edit (reason: update):

Version 0.2.2.
- now hovering the mouse behind the taskbar clock will act the same as in 7 - previews the desktop
- click the icon does the same as it is doin't currently
- and clicking on a window frame while pressing ctrl+shift will "glassify" all the open windows except the clicked one
- added how-to window (describing the 3 options above)


Try it and leave a comment!

Thanks;
GQ

I can't download the file without loging in. Upload it somewhere else.

I might not get idea and sorry to advertise, but how this differs from non-active window transparency found in Nimi!???

...after working few month - I'm getting conclusion that most of people don't even know what software is around them O____O (same for me as well ^-^')

This is a very good app. I'm about to try the updated app. Make sure to update the file that is on your first post. Also, can you make an exclusion list because every time I use aero peek, it messes up Rocketdock.

And nothing happens when I hover over the clock.

EDIT: Updated version doesn't affect rocketdock unless you click on icon in taskbar.
