Tweak Aero Peek Delay Time In Windows 7 With Desktop Peek Tweak

That will speed up the desktop peek. This one:

will speed up the thumbnail peek.

For those who don't want to follow the second link:

1. Click on the Start Button and type in regedit and hit Enter.
2. Navigate through HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse.
3. Right click on MouseHoverTime and select Modify.
4. Set the new value. The default value is 400 milliseconds.
5. Once changed, click OK and restart your computer.
I set mine to 100, logged off and back on, and the thumbnails now appear nearly immediately.
