    Speeding up (not turning off) Windows animations (closing/minimizing)

    Hi all,

    I have been googling on occasion to find a register tweak (or some other windows tweak) to increase the speed of the Windows UI animation, instead of *disabling it*. When turned off it's snappy and all, but it's not a nice experience.

    *Example of disabling animation*

    I know off the menu speed tweak ->HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\MenuShowDelay ..

    And now i can't help but wonder if there's a similar way to tweak the other animations in windows.

    Any tip would be appreciated

    A few I have found: among my tweaks.
    Specifies the number of times the taskbar button flashes to notify the user that the system has activated a background window
    If the time elapsed since the last user input exceeds the value of the ForegroundLockTimeout entry, the window will automatically be brought to the foreground
    reg add "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v "ForegroundFlashCount" /t REG_SZ /d "0" /f
    ForegroundLockTimeout specifies the time in milliseconds, following user input, during which the system keeps applications from moving into the foreground / 0 - Disabled / 200000 - Default
    reg add "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v "ForegroundLockTimeout" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    Determines in milliseconds the interval from the time the cursor is pointed at a menu until the menu items are displayed
    reg add "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v "MenuShowDelay" /t REG_SZ /d "0" /f
    Mouse Hover Time in milliseconds before Pop-up Display
    reg add "HKCU\Control Panel\Mouse" /v "MouseHoverTime" /t REG_SZ /d "0" /f
