system's tray 'WLAN disconnected' pop-up

About got W7 Pro tamed but for two remaining annnoyances. 'Safe Disconnect' and 'WLAN disconnected'. Both like to stay until clicking desktop of their incessantly seen notifications. Hope this tutorial and comments will lead me to resolving those two remaining nuisances.

Hoping the workarounds for these are set icon for 'alway show and notify' for safe disco and 'always hide' for WLAN disco.

Hello Hungsimol, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Try unchecking the Animations in the taskbar and Start Menu option in Visual Effects to see if it may make any difference for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Before post, "Animations in the taskbar and Start Menu" unchecked. I want display "Computer" tooltip faster. Current, about 2 seconds.

Hungsimol,

Since that is tied in with the taskbar thumbnail previews, try decreasing the delay time for taskbar thumbnails instead.

But, I changed ExtendedUIHoverTime = 30000 before because I don't like taskbar thumbnail. It works. But after 2 seconds, tooltip display!

I don't like taskbar thumbnail, need only title of windows and speed up tooltip display. Microsoft! Perhaps they've forgotten.

Hungsimol,

I'll keep hunting for you, but so far I can't find the setting that affects the taskbar icon thumbnail title display delay time.

Get rid of task bar popups completely

Is there any way of getting rid of the annoying popups completely.
I have enough information without these irritating things.
Thank you,

Hello Morrowmm,

You could set the delay time to a high amount of time to not have them pop-up for basically the same affect as disabling them.

Hope this helps,

A word of warning about this value, it seems to overide MenuShowDelay and others also.

If eg. this is left on the default 400 and you have MenuShowDelay at 100 then the menu delay will be 400 not 100.

Hi, https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1884-mouse-hover-time-change.html I used the above tutorial to change the Mouse Hover Time in Windows 7. I changed it to 10000 ms via regedit, and restarted explorer. Soon after, it reverts to the normal Hover Time. It seems to revert randomly.
