Slow-Mo Effect in Windows Vista

For Windows Vista users with Aero Theme, you'll notice a fade-in/fade-out animation when you minimize/maximize a window or when you open/close a window. Since the animation happened so fast and most of the time we just ignore it, there is a trick to slow down that animation whenever you want to. With a little tweak, you can slow down the animation just by holding down the Shift key. To enable the slow-mo effect, you'll have to do a little modification to the Registry.

Here's how to do it:
  1. Open the Run dialog box (Windows-key + R), type regedit (or regedit.exe), and then click OK (or press Enter) to open the Registry Editor. User Account Control might prompt you to allow the action, click Continue.
  2. Find the folder HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM.
  3. Create a new DWORD (32-bit) value. (right-click > New > DWORD (32-bit) Value)
  4. Rename the DWORD value as AnimationShiftKey.
  5. Double-click the DWORD and give it a value of 1.
  6. Click OK and close the Registry Editor.
  7. Log off Windows and log back on again.
  8. Try the function by holding Shift key when you minimize/maximize a window or opening/closing a window.
*Note that this function does not work with every application or with other operating system.
