I am not able to watch the video above because it has been removed or something. But if you have 2 or more windows not full screen, and you take one of the windows and shake it, it minimizes the rest. And what is this border expand thing?

The shaking thing is useless to me but I love snap. I use snap when doing my checkbook online. I open up a browser window with my online bankong account then slide it to the left side of the screen then open my checkbook in Excel and slide it to the right of the screen. It's nicer than Gib's ass on a hot summer day with a humidity reading of 90%... well almost.

An FYI for anyone that doesn't know, mousing over the little square to the right of the time (lower right corner) shows the desktop (as does Windows+Spacebar) and clicking on it minimizes everything (like Windows+M).

Windows(hold)+Tab(tap) does the 3D thing and scrolls through as you tap Tab.

Windows+Ctrl+Tab does the 3D thing and keeps it open so you can scroll with the mouse wheel and left click to select.

Alt+Tab does the usual, but shows a preview, as does clicking the middle button on most mouses.

Plus...

Win+Up: Maximize
Win+Down: Restore / Minimize
Win+Left: Snap to left
Win+Right: Snap to right
Win+Shift+Left: Jump to left monitor
Win+Shift+Right: Jump to right monitor
Win+Home: Minimize / Restore all other windows
Win+T : Focus the first taskbar entry
Win+Space: Peek at the desktop
Win+G: Bring gadgets to the top of the Z-order
Win+P: External display options (mirror, extend desktop, etc)
Win+X: Mobility Center

Another FYI; Windows peeks, Gollum sneaks...
