Speed Up Windows Start Menu

Did you know that you can speed up your Window's Start Menu? It is pretty hard to comprehend, but someone at Microsoft actually thought it would be a good idea to slow down the menus. For those of you would prefer faster menus, do the following:

  1. Open the Start Menu, type regedit, and click OK.
  2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop and look for MenuShowDelay value. If it is not there you can create a string value with that name.
  3. By default it is 400, but you can speed it up exponentially by changing it to 0.
  4. Once you are done, close the registry. You may have to restart your computer to see a change.
