Kramnik's advice on analyzing chess positions

I just read this post on the chessblogger blog that talks about Kramnik using a chess engine to evaluate the position, but positions the window so that the moves are hidden from view. An example is the picture below that I did with Chessbase 12. The engine window is undockable and you can resize it so that it doesn't show the current move being searched next to the eval, and then you can position it so that the variations are offscreen.

This way you have to come up with the moves, but the engine tells you when you have gone off the correct path. I've put a red box around the visible part of the engine window in the image below.
