Hack for Speeding Up Taskbar Previews

Monday, March 4, 2013 Posted by Glenn Von Posadas

When you roll over taskbar icons in Windows Vista and in Windows 7, little previews appear. The standard delay time for these previews if 400 ms (milliseconds, quite fast), or just under half a second. If this is too slow or too fast for you, of course you can adjust such delay time with an easy Registry Hack.

1. Open the Registry Editor and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Micorosoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > Explorer > Advanced.

note: to open registry editor, go to START>RUN> and enter "REGEDIT" without quotes.

2. Right-click on the right pane and click NEW > DWORD (32-bit) value. Name the new DWORD "ExtendedUIHoverTime".

3. Double-click on ExtendedUIHoverTime to open it. Under "Base", click Decimal and then enter in the delay time (in milliseconds) in the "value data" filed. Click OK to set the time (default is 400 milliseconds).

4. Log off and then log back in for the change to take effect.

so that is it!
