Windows 7: Autohide speed


13 Aug 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
 
 
Taskbar autohide feature

Is there a way to increase the speed in which the taskbar appears/disappears in autohide mode?

Windows 7 Professional x64 Build 7600
 
 
Taskbar autohide feature

The only way that I know how to do this is to change the 'Fade or slide menus into view' settings.

Goto:
Control Panel
System and Security - System
Advanced System Settings
Advanced Tab
Performance - Settings
Under the 'Visual Effects' Tab , untick 'Fade or slide menus into view'
Click Apply

You lose the animation of the auto-hide taskbar popping up, but it's undoubtedly faster as it will appear instantly.

Thanks, that's pretty much exactly how I wanted it to be.

A shameless bump, this is.

Without completely turning off these animations, is there a registry tweak to make it show/hide, like, 75ms or so?

I think that would be really cool
