thats always good to know! anything to speed up your computer is nice!also, is this applicable to all versions of windows or only 2k, xp, vista?-jimmy
wow does this really work would be handy if it does
wow that is a great find thanx for sharing, this will definitely benifit all windows users.
You can accomplish this same task, and several others without even having to go into the registry editor. (Which might I add, you can easily break your whole system in there).Simply click on start --> control panel --> Performance & Maintenance --> SystemOr right click on My Computer and go to properties.Then click on advanced.Then you will see an area that says performance, click on the settings button.From that screen you can select from a ton of performance vs. visual look options.
On a 2GHz machine, this fix is negligible. However, it's good for slower machines.xboxrulz
it's effective for every computer
. Because there is an animation, there also is a delay (the time when you actualy play the animation). On slower computer, this animation tends to take a bit longer, so disableing it would be more efficient.On the other hand, when the cpu('s) are fully loaded (video compression, compiling, ...), you might see a big difference, even when you're on a fast machine.
Hmmm didn't work for me, (still animates) oh wellReplying to FeedbackerIt works, you need to log off and log on (RELOG
)Word/Excel Hyperlinks Turn Animation Back OnRemove Window Animation - Make It Run FasterSimply using aM$Word hyperlink to jump to another documentinadvertently brings back window animation, no matter whether animationhad been turned off in :(1.) the registry at MinAnimate (using Windows Xp for example), (2.) “Performance Options » Visual Effects » Custom »  Animate windows when Minimizing and maximizing” (as found in Windows 7),

This state of affairs over time has grown into quite a Frustration to me, especially since Word 2003, but if I’m right this Misbehaviour also existed e.G. In Word 97v8, and it still hangs around in
2007v12, while admittedly I have not checked on Word 2010 thus far. Windows Xp, 2003, Vista, 7, none of them are able to stop Microsoft’s own Word from turning window Animation back on as a side effect of jumping through a hyperlink
Deep, deep shame on Redmond for this, and on the whole Gates family!!
But I must keep hoping - any solution to this inconsistency wouldBring a massive relief to me ! -reply by Yvo DRIES

You can shut off the animation displayed when you minimize and maximize Windows.
1. Open RegEdit.
2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl panel DesktopWindowMetrics
3. Create a new string value "MinAnimate".
4. Set the value data to 0 for Off – or 1 for On.
This will put less of a stress on your graphics card – especially if you have an older computer.
Word/Excel Hyperlinks Turn Window Animation Back On !?#@~
On any 32-bit Windows version, simply using a M$Word hyperlink to_jump to another document inadvertently brings back window animation, no matter whether animation had been turned off in :::
(1.) the registry at MinAnimate (on Windows Xp for example),
(2.) “Performance Options » Visual Effects » Custom »  Animate windows when minimizing and maximizing” (as found in Windows 7),
(3.) gpEdit.msc using “Do not allow window animations”, at computer and/or user level (Vista and above).
This state of affairs over time has been quite a frustration to me, especially since Word 2003.v11. If I recall correctly, this inconsistent misbehaviour already existed e.g. in Word 97v8 (and probably earlier too then). It_still hung around in_2007v12. Meanwhile I also checked Word 2010.v14 and even 2013.v15, to no avail.
Windows Xp, 2003, Vista, 7, up to 8.x, none of their 32-bit versions have been able to stop Microsoft’s own Word from turning window animation back_on as a side effect of jumping through some hyperlink.
Redmond and the whole Gates history deserve Deep Shame for this, even if nowadays 32-bit Windows is almost a thing of the past.
Even today I would still welcome an ultimate solution to this annoyance.
