In the Registry Editor, go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Control Panel\ desktop, and add a string value named MenuShowDelay, with a value specifying the number of miliseconds (400 is default, smaller numbers are faster).

If you have TweakUI, move the Menu Speed control all the way to the left.

Someone at Microsoft answered our prayers. Soon after the introduction of Windows 95, Microsoft got tired of responding to customer complaints (read "annoyances"), so they released TweakUI in their collection of "Power Toys." TweakUI has a little settings window that allows you to fix a few annoyances without messing around in the Registry.

If you're using Windows XP, Windows 2000, or Windows Me, you be interested in Creative Element Power Tools.

Important: bookmark this page. Microsoft has a history of removing TweakUI from their website without notice. Rest assured that this tool will always be available at

Important: please read the instructions below for your operating system for the installation procedure and any applicable notes and warnings. Also, these are for English language systems only. Please contact Microsoft directly for other language releases.

Choose the appropriate version for your operating system:

Windows XP
