    MenuShowDelay


    The main use for editing this registry entry (found in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop) was to make the Start menu more responsive. However, Windows 8 does still have menus, of course, and this setting helps make them, well, more responsive.

    The other useful one is MouseHoverTime (found in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse), which can be used to reduce the delay in pop-up descriptions appearing on items.

    I've edited both of these but noticed where they don't have an effect. The File Explorer File menu and ribbon interface still have the delays. I started using Office 2007 when I installed Windows 8 and see that Office 2007 ribbon menus also have delays. Outlook 2007's regular menus have what feel like the stock 400ms delay.
    .

    Does the ribbon interface have its own settings somewhere else in the registry? Or is it an arbitrary delay setting that can't be changed?
