    Warning: Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.

    To adjust the Aero Peak Desktop Preview delay time, follow these steps:

     

    1. Click the Start button, type regedit in the Start Search box and press ENTER.

     

    Note: If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue. 

     

    2. Navigate to the following location:

     

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

     

    3. Create a new DWORD (32-bit) value named DesktopLivePreviewHoverTime

     

    4. Double-click DesktopLivePreviewHoverTime and click Decimal.

     

    5. To increase the hover delay to 5 seconds, type 5000. Similarly, type 10000 for 10 seconds and so forth…
