I find the "close all but this" is really useful for me in a lot of cases. So are there anyway to close all applications running by this user, but not the active application. Hide could be a option with another hotkey.

Thanks much :)

If you're looking for an AutoHotkey script try this.

If you're already running Windows 7, you won't need another AHK script. You can minimize/hide other windows EXCEPT the active window by pressing WIN + HOME or doing the Aero-shake (click & hold the title bar of the window and then shake it).

This one closes the same type windows only. What I want is all windows :D. But I think I can work this script to what I want. Thanks – nXqd Jun 4 '11 at 14:02
