You can speed up the display with another registry edit. This time go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop. Find “MenuShowDelay” in the right pane. Double-click to open the dialog box. This sets the time delay for the menu. Whatever is displayed (the magazine said the default was 400, my system was already set for 200), reduce the number, even as far as 0. It does make a difference even though we are talking milliseconds here.

If this was useful, or you have a question, let me know.   [ more ]
