Windows 7: Quick Question About Closing Apps/ Taskbar (Could someone test this? )

Quick Question About Closing Apps/ Taskbar (Could someone test this? )

So lets say you have a program open, and its not pinned to the taskbar, calculator for example. You close it, and the animation for the programs icon on the taskbar disappears smoothly. Now, if I pin the calculator onto the taskbar and open it (or any current taskbar pinned item) and close it, the icon disappears with a sort of a chunky, or "blocky" animation leaving just the normal taskbar icon.

My question is, should this happen or is my Windows install lagging somehow? Can anyone recreate this and see if you get a similiar result? Simply, non taskbar pinned apps icons seem to close smoother, while ones that are pinned dont really have an animation and just close with maybe 3 different frames.

Hello Keyes,

This would be the Animations in the taskbar visual effects setting. It's normal for there to be a slight delay with the animation. If it's to long or jagged, then you may have something else running that's using a lot of resources causing a temporary longer delay for this.

If you like, you could turn off (uncheck) this setting to have them be instant instead.

Would you be able to try the method above? If you close calculator off for example both unpinned and pinned, do you see a difference in the animation? Memory usage and cpu/gpu is all normal as far as I can tell.

There's a bit more animation when it's not pinned, but otherwise no.

The other visual effect setting for the delay when opening and closing of the app would be "Animate windows when minimizing and maximizing".

Its not really a lag or delay, its just that unpinned programs have a constant animation, while pinned seem to have less. No delay when opening or closing. Ive noticed when opening a pinned program, the opening animation has more frames/smoother than when closing it. Im just trying to figure this out incase something is corrupt or slowing down.

Delay/animation, but yeah it has more animation when not pinned. It's normal.
