Just a little guide on increasing your start menu speeds, hope you enjoy.


Go to start --> run --> type in "regedit"

A new screen will pop-up, then click HKEY_CURRENT_USER --> Control Panel --> Desktop

A bunch of files will appear look for "MenuShowDelay" then change the value from 400 to 0

Hope it helps, :thumbsup:


Guess I should put a warning.. well just listen to the advice in the second post, even though if you follow exactly how I wrote it, you shouldn't mess up your computer

The above advice, involves a registry edit.
Improper changes to the registry could render your computer inoperable.
Remember to backup the registry, before making any changes.
Instructions, on how to do that, can be found here:

Shortcut- Start > Run > Regedit, Ctrl+F, MenuShowDelay

BTW this also works for Vista


Multi-Boot, Vista Ultimate x64, Windows 7 x64 & Windows 8 Pro x64
