Make Start button menu to act quick

When you click the Start button and choose Programs, there's about a half-second delay before you see Programs submenu folder. This also applies to selecting any Start menu item that displays a submenu. You can change this delay to anything you want, right down to no delay at all.

To start the Registry Editor.

Go to Start.
Select Run...
Type regedit.
Click OK.

Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Control Panel \ Desktop

Right-mouse click anywhere in the right pane. Choose New, and then select String Value.

Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Control Panel \ Desktop

Name the new value MenuShowDelay.

Double click on MenuShowDelay and enter a number as close to zero as you want. The default is 400, which accounts for the almost half-second delay. Click OK and then close the Registry Editor.

Restart Windows 9x, then click Start and select some folders to see your change. (If things are moving too fast or too slow, go back to the Registry Editor and change the setting to a higher or lower number.

If you are one of those people that wishes to not navigate through the registry, you can download the registry file here. All files have been scanned and are virus free.

Now that you have made your start menu fast, let's make it even faster. This tip was provided by Mosaic1.

Go to Start.
Select Settings.
Click on Control Panel.
Double-click on the Display icon.

Select the Effects tab and uncheck the Animate windows, menus and lists check box.

Click Apply and then click OK.
