Windows 7: Couldn't find a thread about this, need help

Couldn't find a thread about this, need help

It's really starting to bother me, but when i hover my mouse over the "show desktop" button in the bottom right of windows 7, it takes a few seconds to show the desktop, whereas my previous pc did it instantanious when hovered over, is there a way to change this?

See whether it fixes itself by turning the aero peek off (apply) and then on again.
Use Option 3 - that worked for me. Aero Peek - Turn On or Off

Welcome to Seven Forums DanishHades. If the suggestion by whs doesn't help, you can do a registry edit and find a speed that you like (hopefully). I will always caution about making registry changes. If you are not comfortable doing so, do not attempt. If you do, make a System Image, or at least a Registry Backup first.

Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

Registry - Backup and Restore

Then see Brinks tutorial to change the delay (it should be 1 second by default)

Aero Peek - Change Delay Time to Preview Desktop

The question may be why the delay is longer, if set to default.
