In XP and Vista I always change the menushowdelay registry setting to get rid of the wait time when opening menus. It saves time and the operating system feels much faster when this is changed. I use 0 in XP and 1 in Vista, but when I changed it in Windows 7 it really didn't seem to make a difference. The start menus might open slightly faster than before, but are still nowhere near instant like I can get in XP and Vista. I like being able to navigate to things quickly without having to wait. Anyone have any insight about this?
