Windows 7: Laggy interface of Windows 7!

Laggy interface of Windows 7!

I want Aero peek to be instant. I tried this: How to Adjust “Aero Peek” Desktop Preview Delay Time in Windows 7 - Tweaking with Vishal

but it didn't work. I tried "0" decimal for instant Aero peek, didn't work. Then I tried "4000" for 4 seconds, still didn't work. Restarted after each change. Spelled the dword correctly. Double-checked the right location.

I might instead want to Never Combine Icons, but hide labels (which is impossible without editing the registry), but I can't do that either. I tried this but to no effect.

The interface is starting to piss me off. Can help you help me with these other things too?
1. Windows maximize/minimize time, I don't want a delay.



2. Double-clicking a minimized app in the taskbar doesn't maximize, then minimize. There's a delay before you can minimize it again. I don't want that delay! If I double-click a minimized app, I want it to maximize, then minimize really quick like XP! If I only meant to click it once, it's my own damn fault! Ya feel me? :P If you didn't understand that, re-read it a few times.



3. I want to pin my Downloads folder (in the user files folder) to the taskbar. Is that possible?

i got the "never combine icons, but hide labels" registry trick to work, but I'd rather instant Aero Peek on mouse-over. Please help me out.

Also, PLEASE someone tell me, can I get rid of these two delays:
1. when you maximize a windows, there's a short delay before you can minimize again.
2. when the roll-out list of recent items for a certain program in the start menu appears, there's a short delay before you can open that program.

**** the Windows 7 interface
. they designed these "stupid-friendly" delays for inexperienced computer users. I have to do a lot of repetitive tasks in windows 7 and these delays are frustrating and unnecessary.

And can someone tell me if it's possible to pin the Downloads folder to the taskbar?

Oh, and I WANT MINIMIZE/MAXIMIZE TO BE INSTANT. Can you help me out with that?

Taskbar - Pin or Unpin a Folder

I experience no such delays when minimizing or maximizing a window. Maybe your computer just takes a couple seconds to do it.

my computer is an overclocked monster! :P There's a short delay, designed to make it look pretty. You know the little animation?

thanks for the link, i looked over that before, but I thought it wasn't possible to pin Downloads, I could be wrong, I'll read it over again.

I noticed that when I looked at your system specs. Overclocking can cause all kinds of undesired results. Please tell me you have one hell of a liquid nitro cooling system.

Don't worry about that. I'm a seasoned veteran. BTW I edited my last post.

But yeah, I'm talking about that animation. Also when, you maximize something from the taskbar, there's a short delay before you can minimize it again. Let me know if you know any tweaks for that please.

I want the interface quick and to-the-point, like the older OSes. :P I do a lot of repetitive work for hours in Win 7, these little quirks are annoying to me.

No offense but the last guy that had problems like yours also had his CPU overclocked, and he also claimed to be an expert on overclocking. I told him it was a bad idea but he was sure he knew what he was doing. A week later he came to me again because his CPU was burnt out. I refused to help him ever again.

My brother also over clocked an old Pentium II before. The computer literally caught on fire. Ever since I always advise against it, unless the person plans on using a really good cooling system.

When ever I minimize/maximize something I see no delay. It happens almost instantly. There seems to be less than half a second between when I click the program again to re-minimize/maximize it. You can try cutting off the animations, which might make it seems faster. I'd also undo the changes you made that you described in the OP, that way you can be sure you fixed the issue when the correct change has been made.

I'm not having any problems. I want to get rid of delays within the interface.

Anyway, read what the creator of the best temp monitoring program around says about Intel CPU temperature: techPowerUp! Forums - View Single Post - RealTemp General Discussion
