Switching between "Fade" and "Scroll" effects in Windows Vista

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Brandon Taylor, Apr 3, 2007.

  1. In Windows XP, I could easily switch between the "Fade" and "Scroll" effects
    for menus, ToolTips, and the like. In Windows Vista, I don't know where to
    go to access that selection. Can anyone here point me in the right
    direction?

  2. Click Start > right click "Computer" > click Properties > under Task > click
    Advanced Settings > click Continue on the UAC dialog. On the System
    Properties dialog, click the Advanced tab > under Performance click Settings
    managing the the Visual Effects in Vista.

    Andre,

    Brandon said "easily switch between the "Fade" and "Scroll" "! This is
    "easily"?

  5. Actually, the information you provided me was how to turn on or off those
    effects. Let me rephrase my issue: The menus and ToolTips are "scrolling",
    but I prefer the "fade" effect. What am I to do?

  6. You need to edit the registry value named 'UserPreferencesMask' found under
    this key:

    "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop"

    If menus & tooltips are sliding, it probably looks like this.

    9e 2c 07 80 12 00 00 00

    For menus & tooltips to fade, it should be:

    9e 3e 07 80 12 00 00 00

    You'll need to log off & back on for the change to take effect.
