SetPoint Increase Application Switcher Animation Speed on Windows 7

Q: SetPoint Increase Application Switcher Animation Speed on Windows 7

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) success.

Does anyone have the slightest idea where I could disable the animation all together?

Preferred Solution: SetPoint Increase Application Switcher Animation Speed on Windows 7

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.)

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-

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:
 
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
 
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!

Hey everyone,
Just discovered a bizarre application switcher from microsoft, somewhat similar to Apple's Expose.
Here's the screenshot

The thing came up when I clicked the mouse wheel. The mouse is Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 8000. Microsoft software that came with the mouse is installed. Checked the mouse buttons config, and it says that clicking the wheel brings up the Flip 3D.

But, since I use the basic vista theme with Aero disabled (like it more this way), there is no Flip 3D on my machine. When I enable the Aero, clicking the mouse wheel brings up Flip 3D.

Anyone got any idea what is this thing?
Actually i quite like it, because it is fast as hell, way faster and more useful than other third party "expose on windows" third party solutions I tried some time before.
I was wondering how to bring up this thing from my keyboard, but win+tab does nothing. As for now, only clicking the mouse wheel works.
Tried to google this, but didn't find any solutions. Any ideas?

Also, hi to everyone, fisrt post here.
Cheers!

A:Strange application switcher

Hello BGSH, and welcome to Vista Forums.

When Aero is enabled you get the Flip 3D affect. When it is not, you get the standard select open window instead. See the tutorial below to see if this is what you are seeing.

Hi everyone - newbie poster here.  Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
 
I have a Windows XP machine with a roaming profile served by Windows Server 2007.  Some time ago, the application switcher pop-up, which normally shows icons for all open applications, turned into a solid black rectangle (size adjusts, depending on the number of apps open).  This is true no matter what machine I use with my profile so it would appear that it is some sort of corruption at the profile level.
 
This is a work machine and I do have an IT company that I could have look at this for me, but something like this would come with an hourly charge so I'd prefer to figure out how to solve it myself as it's certainly not mission critical, just annoying.
 
FYI, I would call my self an intermediary Windows user.  I'm not a novice by any stretch (have been using PCs since the DOS days), but despite by computer geek leanings have never put the time into being true power user so please tailor any suggestions accordingly.
 
Thanks!!

Not just with a shape following a bone but where the flesh squeezes out around bending joints and is effected by gravity etc. They use it all the time in films e.g. to create dinosaurs. Is there any software like this generally available that wont break the bank? Or is it only available to film companies etc.

A:How to increase CPU Fan Speed

It depends on the type of fan you have.

Some of them alter their own speed according to the temperature, some of them have their speed adjusted by the motherboard.

How many wires run into your fan? If it's three wires then there is no way to control its speed. If it's four wires then connecting the speed control wire to +5V should do the trick.

Dear Friends;

I connect with internet through my wireless phoneset which speed is 230.4kbps. If I want to increase the speed of internet, should I change the internet service provider or the RAM of PC has also influence on internet speed.

Sorry if I could not explain well and sorry for my lack of basic knowledge.
 

A:How can I increase the internet speed?

ram won't assist in internet speed. if you are going through a phoneset modem, you are most likely limited by that technology. You can go to http://www.dslreports.com/stest and see how you rank compared to similar technologies, but I would suspect you are about at the limit.

However, I've been wrong before, so if you show up on the bottom edge of a similar connection type, the next step would be contacting and/or switching isp's.

A:Bit torrent speed increase

Hi

Bit torrent and the like are peer to peer software and work on the basis that you take pieces of the item you want from people who have either the full file or part of it, in a sense this means the actual download speed is dictated by how many people are giving the file (seeding) and how fast there connection is to the internet, if for instance the majority were still on an old dial up then you would see a slow connection and download rate, however if they have a good broadband speed then the download speed would increase.

You cant do anything about the speed other than to try and get a file from those who have a good internet connection, as this isnt something you can guess at then your stuffed and have to wait for the file at whatever speed you can get it at.

I will say this, ensure your router (if you use one) has the correct ports opened on it to allow BT to connect properly, and remember that BT itself is an illegal method of sharing files and you run the risk of being taken to court for any files you choose to download.

A:is there a way to increase wifi speed?

Hi there

1)Your Router needs to support the new Wireless-N standard up to 600 mbs from the presemt 54 mbs (WIRELESS-G).

2) Your Wireless card need to support it too.

Wireless-N routers are a bit more expensive -- and the problem is that if you are using a Laptop it's not easy to change the wireless chip so you'll have to use an external USB Wireless-N card -- also not cheap.

I don't think there will be too many PUBLIC WI FI places that will have wireless -n system for ages yet so you are stuck with wireless g @ 54 MBS max.

If you are on a shared wireless connection then the number of users will also slow it down -- especially if you have a load of users such as in a Hotel downloading Music / streaming audio into their hotel rooms etc.

Here's a wiki on Wireless-n (do further research as always with wiki).

You can OC and manually set a divider in the BIOS to allow you to run your RAM and FSB at different speeds. For your given numbers, you can set a RAM:FSB divider of 8:5.

Your OC may also be limited by your motherboard. But generally speaking, a higher CPU frequency nets a greater boost in performance compared to a higher RAM frequency.

Alright, I may be totally wrong on this but I figured it was worth asking about just incase...

I have dialup, first of all, meaning im connected at 53kps usually.

However, when I download things, like via download managers or torrents or something, it is very rare for me to get a better speed than 5kps.

So my question is, is there a way to allocate/tweak my bandwith or something to let my download managers/torrent programs use more and thus download faster than 5kps?

Any suggestions are welcome, even if they make only slight improvements (on dialup even 1~2kps diffrence is pretty important =/)

Thanks~
 

A:Way to increase download speed?

Not quite sure what you mean by "5 kps", but I will assume you mean 5 kB/s

That is actually a very good result on dial-up, and equates to a sustained stransfer of 40 - 50 kb/s. ("b" = bits, "B" = Bytes).

Many people on dial-up would die for those results....

5 kB/s is 5 x 8 x (error correction overheads) giving 40 or 50 kb/s.

You must have a good modem and good copper to the telephone exchange....I know of nothing that can magically push more data through the phone line, you are already well up to the physical limit possible.

A:increase speed in Firefox

You can disable windows defender in control panel/security settings.
I don't use Vista anymore, but think that's right.

Not sure about Firefox its fast already.
