Is there any way, in Windows XP, to make it so that I see only the window I'm working in over the desktop, so that all other windows are hidden?
I have a large screen, and it gets quite cluttered when I'm programming. It would be nice to hide all the clutter, but a maximized window is often too big to read easily.
I am looking for a solution that will automatically hide any inactive windows, so that I can use alt-tab to choose the window I want, and the window that was active will disappear when I select a new one.
Update: MinimOther by Skrommel (http://www.brothersoft.com/minimother-101553.html) does exactly what I want, but it doesn't work with some of the main programs I use.
