    Hey..!
    That is easy... Just do this :

    To make a shortcut to enter Aero Flip 3D:

    • Right-click on the Desktop, Click on New, Click on New Shortcut
    • In the "Location" field, type in: C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe dwmapi #105
    • Choose a name for it (such as "Flip 3D"), and press Finish.


    Here rundll32 will be running with the argument dwmapi's 105th element, this is the 3D Flip feature. dwmapi stands for Desktop Window Manager API... All the best...!
