Sidebar Gadget "Handles" Delay Setting? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is anyone please aware of any setting that will change the delay / time before a sidebar's gadget "handles" are displayed?
    (The "icons" area to the right of the gadget that appears when the mouse is moved over it, displaying a drag strip, spanner icon, close icon and options icon).

    It would be nice to be able to configure the amount of time or "delay" before this is displayed to a user (much in the same way as you can configure the amount of time before a ToolTip is displayed via a registry setting).

    Unfortunately I can't find anything regarding this. I would much prefer to have a long delay before this "handle" is displayed.
    Aesthetically it destroys the feeling of the toys (especially if they are mouse interactive). One likes to see toys as "part" of the desktop or fixed.
    The illusion is broken when a big drag bar almost instantly pops up (especially if your just mousing around the desktop in general and happen to hover over one).

  • I don't think we can change the response time, it's by design.
