Swipe to minimize desktop windows
I spend a lot of time on the legacy desktop as I imagine many might do. It's great to be able to run non-Metro apps on the Windows 8 tablet until such time as there are more Metro apps in the store.
One problem with using apps on the desktop is that window controls can be awfully tiny. They are hard to hit with precision which is frustrating.
I would like to see a new touch gesture designed to minimize active windows on the desktop. A long diagonal swipe from the upper right to lower left would do the trick nicely, minimizing the window to the task bar. It's nothing fancy but I'd find it extremely useful on the desktop screen with its lack of touch optimization.
