Screenshots: Give every window in Windows 7 a tabbed user interface

When you click and drag a window by its tab, the window shrinks and becomes transparent.

Next, I open Documents and it too has a tab on its window. Now, in order to group the Computer window and the Documents window into a single multi-tabbed version of Windows Explorer, I click on the Documents window's tab and drag it towards the tab on the Computer window. As I do, the Documents window shrinks in size and becomes transparent, as shown.
