Registry Tweak: Tooltip delay?





Arjan
Hello,

How can i change the delay for showing a tooltip in windows XP?
A tooltip like "Click here to begin" on the "Start" -menu.

I know ya can change the delay on menu's to appear in the windows registry but im not looking for that one..

I like to have the tooltips appear immidiately when ya do a mousover.

Can someone help? some windows guru in the house?

Try this one then :

My Computer ->rightclick it -> properties -> advanced -> performance -> choose settings -> look in the list of things you get -> remove the V infront of Fade or slide ToolTips into view

In dutch since you are from Holland :

Deze Computer -> rechts klikken -> eigenschappen -> geavanceerd -> onder prestaties -> instellingen -> vink "Knopinfo schuiven of blablabla in beeld brengen" uit

Thanks for the advice,

I found the "UserPreferencesMask" key under HKCU/Control panel/Desktop who deals with the same options.

You can switch the animation for the tooltip on or off, and choose between a scroll or fade animation. But nothing found to deal with the delay time.

I think its somewhere else and maybe to hard to find. I have to look for something else..
