Windows normally delays menus before they are shown. For regular users this delay can become annoying, with this setting you to change the delay or remove it altogether.
Open your registry and find the key below. Modify the value of 'MenuShowDelay' according to the delay you would like before the menus are shown (the value is time in milliseconds).
If the value doesn't already exist, then simply create a new string value and name it 'MenuShowDelay'.
Note: You may need to restart Windows for the changes to take affect.

Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
Value Name: MenuShowDelay
Data Type: REG_SZ
Data: 0-999 (milliseconds)
