Re: How to change the mouse hover time in Windows 7

The default Mouse Hover Time in Windows 7 is 400 milliseconds. You can modify this time as per your wish.to do so, go through this simple steps:-

1. Go to Start Menu type regedit in the white line and press Enter.

2. Now locate the following folder: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse

3. In the right pane, right click MouseHoverTime and click on Modify.

4. Set the new value 100 in Value Data and click OK .

5. Restart your computer to save the changes.

Thats it...

At the time you set the milliseconds remember that the lower the number, the faster the response time. If you use an entry of 0, there is no delay before the taskbar thumbnail preview opens. However it is not recommended to use 0 though since it may be hard to navigate through the thumbnails at that speed.
