Registry hack for windows close delay

Anyone know the registry tweak to adjust the delay when windows close? They look fine popping up but when I click the close button, there's like a jitter during the hesitation, then they close. Really annoying.

That's from the tutorial were I originally posted and Brink moved me since that isn't the fix. There's got a be a setting for ms delay in the registry someplace. There's one for menu open, but I can't find one for window close delay.

Hi MilesAhead,

I had assumed that you had already unchecked the Visual Effect items there that could affect that. (ex: fade out & Animate windows).

Sorry,
Shawn

You assumed correctly. I'm pretty certain it's a millisecond delay setting someplace in the registry. Maybe it has to do with the stupid thing where you shake the window with the mouse on the title bar and the desktop empties or something? Crazy!!
