Windows 7: Laggy interface of Windows 7!

Yes I'm talking about that animation time bro.

And actually I got instant Aero Peek to work with a different registry tweak: How to Speed Up Taskbar Thumbnails Preview in Windows 7 My Digital Life

I read it and this is what stuck out to me "The bottom line is that if you run a 45nm Core 2 Duo at 4GHz and you need 1.40 volts to be stable, you're going to need a top rated cooler and some good airflow through that cooler to keep the core temperature at a reasonable level so you will be able to maintain stability." This is the mistake I see most people make. If you got that covered, then the best of luck to you. Just thought I'd ask.

Anyways, lets just stick to the main topic. This isn't supposed to be a debate about overclocking.

I think I understand what you mean now. Yes, using the button that is off to the side does have a delay of about one second, but the article you link to is for the preview, sometimes called Glass or peak. It does not work for actually minimizing and maximizing. I also don't know of a way to remove the delay either. The article is interesting however. I might be able to put it to use at some point. It is nice how customizable 7 is, but we can't change everything. This might be something you just have to deal with. Sorry.

Now working on this folder in taskbar thing...

Yeah I'm stable bro. 12 hours of prime95 stable. You brought it up to begin with. I have a decent after-market cooler, but not liquid cooling.

But what that guy's saying, is that there's no need to worry about core temperature (because of Intel's thermal throttling) as long as you're stable. And he's talking about something specific in that quote. the entire quote was:

Of course, overclocking can lead to shortened CPU life because of electromigration, but that's why I buy cheap CPUs and overclock them. Actually this E2200's been running for about 2 years like this.

On the instructions for a folder pinned to taskbar: Taskbar - Pin or Unpin a Folder

I get stuck at step 7, I don't have dotted lines to drag. I'm trying to pin my Downloads folder in my User folder.

Yeah I just have no dotted line thingy to drag. Let me know if you can help.

Here's what I did:
1. created a folder in Downloads
2. created a toolbar of the Downloads folder.

Stuck on step 7, I can't drag it! No dotted line thingy.

Looks like I can't pin Downloads, just a folder in Downloads.

I made a shortcut to downloads though, and placed it in a new folder, made a toolbar out of that folder, and got it to work now.

If you have a maximized window, then minimize+maximize has no delay. A double-click causes the window to go down, then immediately back up.

If you have a minimized window, then maximize+minimize needs a delay. A double-click only does the first step - maximize. You must do a small pause between the click to minimize again.

I don't believe this is a performance thing. It is definitely done on purpose. Most likely focus testing has found that people try to double-click, then complaining that their minimized applications never show up.

Exactly, let's design the OS for these morons. That's my point. I know it's purposely done; it's a "stupid-friendly" thing for computer-illiterate people.

Same thing with opening the start menu; try double-clicking it.

I'm trying to find a way to lose that delay. I doubt there's a way, but who knows? Also, when the roll-out "recent/frequent" menu for each program in the start menu opens, you can't open that program for a second.

These things just break my flow when I'm working. So used to working with the XP/2000 no-nonsense interface.
