How come these effects ie. scroll and fade for "all programs" only work for the submenus within it. i was at officemax and when i hit all programs the programs faded in nicely, mine just appear. this is a stupid question but i'm just curious where this option is.
Actually, if you have set that option, the menu is trying to fade and then appear. But once there are lots of items in there, it can't fade anymore. It uses up too much resources. Instead, it'll just appear at once.
At OfficeMax they probably have a stronger computer that can handle it better.
A tip: disable shadows behind the menus. This will boost up the appearance of the menus (if you experience slowdowns with them, that is. Otherwise, it isn't necessary).
hmmm I just noticed it doesn't work for me either...I know it has nothing to do with resources (athlon XP 1800+, 1gb ram, gf4 4400)...so maybe it's a bug, who knows could be the screen is refreshing too fast or somethin, as of now i'm clueless
wow! you must teach us your ways! i run a 1.8 ghz comp with 80 gigs dell and etc.. anywayz maybe it has to do with home/professional. i'm using home. i'm not good with comps but i guess thats just an idea.
The main All Programs menu does not fade on my XP Home account either; however, it does fade on my wife's account. The only difference between the two is that I use large fonts (I have bad eyesight) and she does not.
Is anyone else using large fonts having the fade problem?
Also, if you get it to work with large fonts, please let me know.
