Peeking through Windows

Peeking through windows is a capability that should have been built into Windows. It's extremely convenient to be able to instantly see what's underneath a window without having to move it and then move it back.

This action will make the windows translucent so that you can see through them to what's underneath. There are actions for peeking through a single window and for peeking through all windows at once.

The amount of transparency can be customized separately for both peeking through one window and peeking through all windows. You can make the window or windows fade instantly or gradually.

The peek actions have customizable translucency and fade.

The following peek actions are available to assign to any screen side or corner:

Peek at the desktop while the mouse is in the selected position

This action will make all open windows translucent so that you can see through them to the windows underneath and the desktop. You can customize the amount of transparency from 1% to 99%. When you move your mouse away from the selected screen edge, the windows are returned to an opaque appearance.

Peek at the desktop until it is re-enabled

This action will set all open windows to a customizable translucency so that you can see through them to the windows underneath and the desktop. The windows will remain translucent until you reset them with the Re-enable the desktop after peek desktop action.
