@Brink
I followed the manual way. Ive set it to 0. Context menu items opens instantly but "All programs" in start menu opens with default speed. How do i correct it?
Afaik, it applies to start menu also.

Thanks

Hello Ezio,

Sorry mate, but this does not affect the "All Programs" area in the Start Menu. Instead it would affect the buttons on the right dark side of Start Menu if they are set to "Display as a menu" in Customize Start Menu settings.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

You might see if this may allow it to. with a setting of 0. Be sure tot check the items in the Warning box at the top to see if that is affecting it as well.

hey thanks for the great post, I wonder if this is possible to do for the most recent programs in the start menu?

Eg, when your mouse hovers over a most recently used program such as word in the start menu and the list of most recent document opens up immediately?

Hello Zijin,

This should affect that as well.

I actually had the reverse problem. I wanted to increase the delay time, because I detest sub-menus opening up before I click them.

I found that the value can be more than 4000 (4 seconds). I tried 10000, and it was about 10 seconds. Then I wondered if a negative value might make it infinite, i.e. not open the sub-menu until I click. Sure enough, I set it to -1, and that now seems to occur.
