Minimize windows with a double click in the title bar Desktop
There's always more than one way to do things with a Mac. I found by accident that double clicking the title bar of most apps will move it to the dock. So there's command M, clicking the yellow button, and double clicking the title-bar. Kind of like window shade. Useful sometimes.

[Editor's note: I did a quick search, and I don't think this particular version of this method has been published here before ... of course, as the database continues to grow, it's getting harder to say that with 100% certainty!]

This is an old trick. Too bad you just find out.

I noticed this feature the first time I used OS X. However, it was because I was looking for a way to quickly "Maximize" the screen due to my Wintel training. I did not know about Cmd-M, though. Cool!
