    Your Mouse Hover time in the Registry is set to Default, it is just the same as mine. 400
    Maybe I am not understanding your questions? If your mouse gets Stuck for a spit second, you may call it a hover, then this is usually an issue with some software you've installed. A Clean Boot will usually fix this issue.
    If you have slow internet, your mouse may hover for split second before moving on. Testing your internet speed takes just a few minutes.
    If I am misunderstanding, then maybe someone else can chime in?

    Changing Mouse Hover Time or Menu Show Delay in Windows will not affect the way a website behaves.

    MouseOver or Mouse Hovering is an action managed by Windows GUI,
    from the beginning (W95 if I'm correct)

    it happens when the pointer pass over a specific activation point:
    in response the system (or the program) will popup a bubble or a square or a window with specific contains that will momentarily cover the underlying contents, but will disappear if you move the pointer away

    One typically used and widely known is in W-FileExplorer:
    when you pass over a filename or a directory a small square appear offering you some details regarding that item.
    The other on the "Classic" start button it make the menu to appear

    In my two PCs the "reaction time" is near zero, even if it's set by default 0,400 seconds.
    .. even putting that registry value to 0,700 dont change that reaction time.

    In browser, if you check the video I linked 4 posts back, its near instantaneous
    and the response cover the original page.

    What I'm looking if anybody got lucky solving it in a "general way" or "browser specific"

    I posted two ways of solving it for "Menu" and "Taskbar"
    ... but these are not what I'm looking for 'cause are not a problem for me

    Web page tooltips are shown using a variety of methods (javascript, CSS, etc.). They may or may not be alterable by a user, but in any event will require delving into the web page code. Such tootips are not (directly) under the control of either the browser or the OS. The browser may have a setting to control tooltip delay in the browser's own UI, such as in Firefox there is the preference "ui.tooltipDelay" on the about:config page (which may have to be created), indicating delay in milliseconds, with default value of
    500.

    Thanks!! that was the setting I remembered.... it was located somewhere.. couldn't remember if OS or Browser :-(

    I learned a lot about that here:
    ui.tooltipDelay - Mozilla | MDN
    and here:
    google chrome - Forcing browser tooltips to show immediately - Super User

    But it seems nobody care about it nowadays !! :-D

    (it seems to be deprecated and it was working in Firefox only)

    PS:

    PS: still no Idea why the reaction is so fast .... may be somebody forgot somewhere along the lines :
    Code:
    tooltipShowDelay={0}
    (unless it's me, my reactions becoming more and more slower)

    Yes ... hovering and tooltips are from '95 - Wikipedia !! mentioning "Chen" > Tweak UI - Wikipedia

    I've lost the course of this thread...

    you seem to be bouncing from one tweak to another...

    what is this tooltipShowDelay thing?

    Sorry, I was not clear on that:
    it's a JS piece of code that was default in one of the version of the JS toolkit.
    (having ZERO instead of the correct value "500"- may be an error)

    I've found several reference to issues like mine, in people testing their code in 3rd Q 2020

    As long as I remember starting to have that general issue myself at that time...
    but not being only browser related, I thought I had changed some hidden W10 setting, during some test.
    Sure that sudden change was not related to upgrades. I locked W-Upgrades out.
    Question was with my big surprise:
    why the new PC present the same instantaneous response to hover?

    At first I googled for "mouse hover" and got nothing recent enough, the "tooltip" search found more and more results from Devs, but still nothing on general solution.
    In any case I'm not alone asking this question over the Net, but we are few and no consistent solution so far.
    (lot of older references were solved using TweekUI)

    Alain

    PS: ... and Chen and its "TweekUI" was a savior at that time...
