How To Shade Windows With Mouse Wheel

Scroll your mouse wheel in the up direction when your cursor is over the title-bar of a window. That window should now animate by sliding into the title-bar, therefore shading the window (assuming you're using CompizFusion). If this isn't the case, you can fix it by doing the following:
  1. Press Alt+F2
  2. Type gconf-editor
  3. Expand the aps folder (in the left column tree)
  4. Select the gwd folder
  5. Double click the mouse_wheel_action key in the right column
  6. Type shade into the value field
  7. Press OK and close the configuration editor.
