I am using your other menushowdelay reg file but it points to a different key than this one. Will this affect my pc in a negative way if i use both? This is your other one I am using now. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

Hello Papayrus, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The .reg file in the tutorial on the first page here is a combination of different tips from other tutorials here at Seven Forums.

The MenuShowDelay DWORD value in your post is just one of them included in it.

Hope this helps,

Shawn

Yes but they are in totally different keys in the registry. What is the difference? Should I delete the first one I used before I use this one?

No need to delete it. Whichever one you merged/set last will override the setting for the MenuShowDelay DWORD data value.

The MenuShowDelay DWORD can have it's data modified to whatever you want the time delay to be. The one in the tutorial on the first page has it set to 0 (zero), and the one in your post has it set to 20. It's up to you for what you would like to change it to be. That's all.

OK I think what I will do on my computers is just use the one in this first post then since it includes all the other safe tweaks already in it and just delete the old one I had. I have your other tweak the 30ms_Mouse_Hover_Time.reg do I need this one still if I use thisone or will it make any difference and if so should I install that one first or second or does it matter? Sorry asking so many questions but I am now putting together all the tweaks I will be using on 10 of my windows 7 32 bit computers and just want to make sure I am doing it the right way. Most the tweaks are yours now anyway if not all.

This one on the fist page includes multiple teaks along with the Mouse_Hover_Time one setting it to be 0ms, and the other one sets it to 30ms.

It just depends on what time you want. If you want a time other than 0ms, then also use the other one to change it to 30ms instead. NO need to delete anything.

Um there is no Mouse_Hover_Time in the reg file on the first page of this post but I just noticed that there is 3 MenuShowDelay lines in the reg file at the beginning of this post. Why 3?

The MenuShowDelay registry entry is the setting for the "Mouse Hover Time".

The 3 entries are to set it for: your account, the system account (S-1-5-18), and trusted installer (NT Authority) (S-1-5-19) account.

Do you prefer the taskbar buttons combined or not combined?
Hi, i want to know and why if you prefer the taskbar buttons combined or not? One good thing about keeping them combined is that it makes it look neater and in a way gives you more room to add to the taskbar and perhaps the only downfall is the buttons are not labeled.
