Windows 7 - Adjust Animation Speed?

Q: Windows 7 - Adjust Animation Speed?

Hi @ all... Is it possible to adjust the anmination speed of the minimizing, maximizing, snap-feature and so on? Perhaps something like changing a value in the registry which sets the animation time in milliseconds? Thanks for all solutions... Greetz -Osiris-

Preferred Solution: Windows 7 - Adjust Animation Speed?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Windows 7 - Adjust Animation Speed?

Hi -Osiris-,
Based on my knowledge, we cannot change the animation speed of the minimizing, maximizing, snap-feature. However, it is possible to set the Aero Peak desktop preview delay time. To do this, please refer to the steps below:
1. Click the "Start" button, type "regedit" (without quotation marks) in the "Search" bar, right click on the "regedit.exe" found in the list and then click "Run as administrator".
2. Navigate to the following key:
3. Right click the Advanced entry on the left pane, choose "Export", select "Desktop" in the "Save in" box and type "backup" (without quotation marks) in "File Name". Click "Save".
Please Note: The backup file is on the Desktop and named "backup.reg". We can simply restore the registry by double-clicking the "backup.reg" file.
4. Right click on the Advanced entry on the left pane, choose "New" -> "DWORD".
5. Rename the DWORD as DesktopLivePreviewHoverTime.
6. Double click the newly created DesktopLivePreviewHoverTime, choose Decimal and change its value to the one you desired.
NOTE: Remember the value should be given in milliseconds, so if you want to set the delay time to 5 seconds, set the value to 6000.
7. Log off the user account or restart the computer to take effect.

Hey All,

This is an excellent tip for Windows 7 users. Other versions of Windows may have similar ways to disable the fade and animation menus, but these steps will be for Windows 7. Note that by default, Windows turns on a lot of menu fade in and out controls when programs and menus are opened and closed. They may look cool, but they also consume tons of memory, can be unnecessarily trying on the CPU, and consume computer resources that can be better used for your system elsewhere:

To Disable These Animations and Fades:

1.) Click the Windows Start Button Icon.
2.) type the word "fade" (no quotes) in the search box
3.) select change the appearance of Windows from the list of choices. Click on that list.
4.) A dialogue box opens. These are your appearances and theme choices for how programs, menus, and other selections that are set by default in Windows 7.
5.) Click on the Customize Radio Button.
6.) Uncheck All items that say they word "Fade", "Animation", or any form of the word animate in them.
7.) Click Apply
8.) Click OK
9) Now close out of everything and try to open up your programs, such as your browser, Office Programs, Folders, right-clicking. Everything will open up about twice as fast because animation and fade options are all turned off!

too long; didn't read: I (2nd year CS Student) am looking for a way to increase the animation speed or disable the animation of the Logitech SetPoint "Application Switcher" Button on windows 7?

Hi All!

First off, I found this community by accident while looking for some tips and tricks! I registered and am curious to see if maybe I can receive some help or a pointer in the right direction with my issue (because it's not really a problem).

So, at home I have my windows 10 and use the M705 Logitech Mouse with the thumb-button configured to show my application switcher (Shows open Applications on current desktop and at the bottom a list of virtual desktops), which I LOVE.

Que coming to work. "Here's your windows 7 laptop."

... "thank you?" I do get it, security is important and they have it set up specifically to tailor their needs, so, while a tad disappointing, I understand why.

Anyway, I'm setting things up the way I like it and found that the windows 7 application switcher (ALT+Tab) isn't really that fantastic. I installed the SetPoint from Logitech because my mouse is more comfortable and was surprised to find that they had implemented a type of application switcher for windows 7! All in all, it works like a charm. The only downside being is that the animation is quite slow.

I've been souring the Interwebs for a secret setting and the install files for a config file to adjust but with little (I mean none at this point) ... Read more

I listen to audio recordings of conference calls and edit transcriptions of them. When I had Windows XP and and an earlier version of Windows Media Player, I was able to use either a menu command or a keyboard command to increase or slow the speed of playback, and the player responded instantly to these commands. Now I have Vista and its new Windows Media Player 11, and there is a delay of 5-10 seconds between when I use the command and when the recording actually slows down or speeds up. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Alternatively, can anyone suggest another media player that would work better? I've tried Real Player and VLan, neither of which appears to have this control at all, and Goldwave, which has the controls I need in two different windows and doesn't work particularly well.

Im trying to optomize my other computer. It's FSB speed is 133 and its ram speed is 200. I hear when they sync up its more stable. Is this true? If so, what should I do. I get extremely poor memory benchmarks and I think it might be a factor in lag.

A:Adjust ram speed?

Yes it is true. You can make your PC run faster than the ram is capable of running, because of this different mobo makers have designed workarounds in the bios in order to make the ram run at a slower speed than the fsb. This is a workaround, not a perfect solution, so it does affect the performance. You probably suffer around a 10% drop in memory performance by clocking the ram at a slower speed making use of the workaround in the bios, and then a drop in performance due to useing the slower memory. Therefore the best answer is to loosen up the memory settings and/or up the dimm voltage and/or buy ram that is advertised as running at the same bus speed or higher that your running. Keep in mind that any or all of the solutions may or may not work.

If your running 3.9gigs of ram you may be creating the problem. There's no gain that I can see from running that much ram, and some boards may advertise that they can use that much ram but suffer a performance drop when useing that much. The old Pheonix bios versions used in older 486 and pentium boards comes to mind, there was a glitch where to much ram would actually make the PC slower...

I know how to adjust my mouse speed/sensitivity when I'm logged into Windows.

But my work computer got a new mouse, I adjusted the speed, and now when I'm not logged in (that is, on the login screen), the mouse pointer just FLIES around the screen, and I feel like I'm on drugs or otherwise uncoordinated when I try to move the pointer.

I've seen this happen on other computers too.

A:How does one adjust mouse speed on the login screen?

It's hard to do since Windows may not have loaded drivers for the mouse at that point. Is it a USB Wired, USB Wireless or a Wired PS/2 mouse? For the USB I'd assure it's not plugged into a USB 3.0 port [usually blue], have seen issues doing that and fixed by moving the plug to the black USB 2.0 port. You may need to get into the BIOS and Enable Legacy USB support.

I have both an LCD screen and a projector on my PC, I switch to the projector for watching TV (I also use the PC as a PVR). My previous LCD was 1280x1024 and my projector is 1280x720 so with the pixel width being the same the mouse went at the same speed on both screens.

I now have a 1920x1080 LCD and because of the huge resolution difference the mouse appears to run at half speed when I'm on the LCD screen.

Is there a program that adjusts the mouse speed based on screen resolution so that my mouse appears to run at the same speed on both screens? It's annoying having to move the mouse twice as much when I'm on the LCD.

Thank you

I have an ASUS P5E-VM HDMI mobo and running Windows 7 Professional. The mobo has a VGA and HDMI and dual monitor capabilities. I have my computer monitor on VGA and my TV on HDMI. When I have both monitor and TV connected, I lose the Windows 7 startup animation. It uses the Vista animation instead. When I have just the computer monitor alone, on VGA or HDMI, the Windows 7 animation comes back. How can I make the Windows 7 be used even if both monitor and TV are connected? I know it's a small thing but I like that animation.

Hi All. I have something that is bothering me. I have Windows 7 64 bit. I have IE8. I have no problem viewing animations, gifs, videos etc online. But, if I download an animation or gif to my computer, I cannot click on it and see the animation. I have two Paint Shop Pro programs installed, I won't get into why 2. One is X2 Ultimate and the Other one is the new release X3. Neither one will open an animation. I also have Photoshop Elements 8, it
won't either. What am I missing that I cannot view the gifs and animations on my computer. I have Animation Shop and would like to see the picture I make without having to open Animation Shop to watch it.

I know Adobe does not support 64 bit, and that's fine, although I am able to see these gifs and animations online. I know I could use 32 bit IE, which I have done on occasion. I just wonder if there is something I can install that I can view these pictures. I'm stumped. Some of them I want to place on a web page, but would like to view them first.

Okay, I'm done. I'm babbling. Sorry. I hope someone can help me with this.

I have installed Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64-bit alongside Windows 7 Professional 64-bit OS in dual-boot configuration with GRUB 2.02beta2. Both OSs are up to date; however, occasionally I do not get the animated Windows logo in the Windows 7 boot-up and a distorted screen is displayed instead until I am presented with the login screen.

Hi guys, I'm kind of new to all this... but I'm having problems installing windows 7. I've been running windows XP professional successfully for the past few years, and decided to go for the upgrade.

Problem: On start up, I'll boot straight from the windows 7 CD and it'll pass the first screen with the load bar no problem. But when it goes to the next screen with the windows animation of the 4 balls it'll crash and give me a BSOD with:

STOP: 0x0000009c

I've done some research, and apparently the stop code has something to do with XP (I'm not sure why windows 7 is even accessing XP if its just overwriting it). I ran the windows 7 upgrade advisor and everything's compatible. I've tried installing both 32 and 64bit versions. I tried flashing the BIOS. I bought a brand new hard drive and tried installing on that. I then installed XP on the new hard drive (which worked flawlessly) and then attempted to upgrade it to windows 7. But every time I still just get the same BSOD at the exact same place in the installation.

Last thing I tried was to run the windows the setup without any hard drive connected, and it got past the animation no problem and into the actual setup. I went through the first couple screens until i came to the one that says "Where would you like to install windows 7?" I then plugged in the hard drive, and clicked refresh on the menu... and guess what pops up, the same dam BSOD!

At this point, I really have no idea what could ... Read more

Windows (or some other program) keeps disabling the "Animate windows when minimizing and maximizing" option under the "Visual Effects" tab of the "Performance Options" window. This occurs even when I have the settings set on "Custom." I have a Core i3 processor with the lastest Intel HD Graphics drivers, so it's most likely not because my computer can't handle the simple animations. I've read about people with the reverse problem (i.e., the option automatically enabling itself after you have disabled it), and in some of those cases it appeared to be a conflict with software from Logitech. But I don't use Logitech peripherals. Any suggestions?

What I describe here is how to manually change the boot animation, the four lighting balls that turn into the Windows flag. I will also explain in detail how to modify nearly everything until after animation is finished playing.

Before we start I can say that it is also possible to switch to a static boot image by patching the kernel. Just do the same thing you did on nt 5.x. Replace the first bitmap in the kernels resources.

To change the animation there are several things to remember. Unless you want to patch bootmgr and winload.exe, you must configure TESTSIGNING on in the BCD. It is possible to do this without TESTSIGNING, but we will get to the details later on. And the hacks work equally fine on x86 as on x64!

Unless you want to read about the details, you can go straight to user thaimins's (Jeff) excellent application that will do it all for you and supporting both 32 and 64-bit; http://www.coderforlife.com/projects/win7boot/ and here's also a link to a good collection of animations on a german forum; http://www.deskmodder.de/phpBB3/view...?f=220&t=13363

1. Now the animated bitmap, activity.bmp, is loacted inside a wim in bootres.dll. We will first need to extract the wim, so we open the dll in resource hacker and export the resource named RCData. The wim can then be mounted with lots of tools, like 7zip and gimagex. Inside there is activity.bmp found. I will not make this a tutorial about animation, so for the sake easyness we just open the file in paint.... Read more

Hi guys, so the issue I am having is with an MDG visionbook and it currently has Windows 7 on it.
after much trial and error I've discovered that the computer won't allow me to do many things (I will elaborate later) after some/all updates have been installed.

The updates include several hardware updates and a mutitude of security updates (each time I reinstalled the OS it would fluctuate between 86 important updates to 106 improtant updates)

An earlier attempt allowed me to put in all the important updates, including hardware, but then failed after I tried to download the optional scuzzy harddrive update

This time around I have only installed the chipset and the scuzzy update.

Some of the things that happen after an update:
1. No animation after updates have installed
2. Every system restore point is corrupt
3. Boot rec only created new partitions

I am sure there is more; it simply isn't coming to mind

For me the end goal is to have all the important updates installed (save afew unsavoury ones)

please respond ;_;

A:After Windows 7 updates there is no animation and worse...

Hi and welcome to TSF if you have the chipset then you should install the audio,video,lan,wifi then any other drivers prior to installing any updates.The driver should be available from the makers support site for your model of machine

Hi, all first post here. I've been using Windows 7 Boot Updater for a while but I've run into a weird problem. I applied a new animation while my computer was connected to a 4:3 computer monitor and it worked great as usual. But when I connected the computer to my widescreen TV instead of displaying my custom animation it displays an old windows animation. See picture.

This happened to me once before and I thought it was that particular computer but now it happened again with another computer. What I don't understand is why this is only happening to me sometimes with certain computers while other times it works fine. I always use the same custom animation.

So to recap, sometimes it will display the custom animation fine whether the computer is hooked up to a monitor or a TV and other times it displays the Windows animation below when hooked up to a widescreen TV. This is not the same computer but different ones. What I'm I missing?!

Okay heres the deal. I have a Lenovo 3000 Series J115. I'm not sure of the motherboard model at all.

My old hard drive crashed, so I went ahead and bought a new one.
I installed the new one, and popped in my Windows 7 CD. The first problem happened here. During the installation where I partition my drive, it told me no drivers were found and I had to insert a floppy disk with the drives on there for my hard drive.
I didn't know what drivers I needed, nor had a floppy drive so I just transferred the hard drive to another computer in the house, and successfully installed Windows 7 on it from there.

After transferring it back to my original computer, the computer boots up (takes a long time unless I request the boot sequence to boot directly from the HDD) to the Windows 7 starting animation, where the four colors come into the Windows logo, then restarts and repeats in the process.

I've searched online, and I'm not sure if it's a connection problem or not. I think the connection I had previous to this new hard drive is the same.
The only difference is my old hard drive was SATA but it was connected with the 4 input power chord, but my new one is just connected by the SATA power connector (no option for the 4 input chord).

I'm not sure what the problem is. I tried going into the BIOS to change SATA settings and boot order preferences, however I don't see the option. I'm sure I tried checking under every setting.

Anyone have any input or experience with this?

A:Computer Boots Up To Windows 7 Animation Then Restarts

This is the typical stall point where Win7 installed on other hardware won't start up on new hardware due to a conflict with major drivers.

The solution is to return the HD to the machine Win7 was installed upon, Sysprep it to remove all drivers, activation, and hardware ID. SysPrep to move HD to another computer

It should then start up on the new hardware and install all drivers, requesting several restarts along with other user setup participation.

If this fails we can help you further troubleshoot installation as Win7 should install to that make/model without need for HD controller drivers. You may need a newer BIOS version from Support Downloads webpage, or to reset CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS or proceed further with troubleshooting install.

This is by far the worst experience with computers I have had. I work in IT section and I have quite decent knowledge of hardware and software but this problem has had me thinking if I am stupid or dont have no knowledge.

My problem is that i have brand new Dell Inspiron 7567 4K edition.

i7-7700HQ(HD 630), GTX 1050Ti, 8GB DDR4, SSD 128 and 1TB HDD, Windows 10.

* Thing is that when I browse web(chrome, opera, IE, Edge) the scrolling is laggy/choppy.
* Moving explorer windows fast.
* Scroll in Spotify for example.
* Right click menu for example on desktop takes second or two to show up without the usual animation. Just pops up with delay.
The list goes on and on...

Playing games so far is fine. I get what I expected for this money and graphics chip (GTX 1050Ti).

My problem here is that all the drivers from dell and even from Intel wont fix the problem when im using the native 4K resolution on desktop... which is weird because the google is full of these kind of problems that people are having with the same exact model (7567 4K edition).

Is there a Dell representative here that could tell me what can I do because clearly it does not seem to be a hardware issue. How long do I have to wait for new drivers to come out which could fix the problem here?

When I change the resolution to 1080p ... its fine. Scrolling and moving windows are butter smooth but the 4K resolution is god awful.

I think Dell would have tested their laptop before the released it to the publi... Read more

Everything works fine, Windows load perfectly....but if someone can resolve this problem makes me happy.

Thank u! Sorry for my English!

A:Windows boot animation issue on Satellite L50-A-1F2


I think your problem is defiantly related to the installed Linux.
Probably Windows 8.1 boot manager has been replaced by Linux GRUB and therefore the booting procedure looks differently.

I have no solution for you but would recommend you to check some FAQ and HowTo's in order to configure the GRUB
