    how to change menu show delay in registry

    does anyone know how to change the menu show delay value? I hate the fact that my menus aren't showing up immediately. It's xp, if that matters.

    Normally this registry key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\MenuShowDelay

    0 for fast, >0 for slower.

    But since you're using xp, perhaps this might be more explicit?

    edit: Or, if you prefer, use TweakUI, a powertoy.
