    Fading Quick Launch?? (Home Premium)

    There has to be some setting I tripped somewhere, 'cause now, when I move my mouse over the QL Bar, (which is set to auto-hid) it pops up, but then, when I move off the QL bar, instead of just dropping down, it hangs fro a minute in "semi-fade" and then drops down.

    What is this and can I fix it?

    I looked on Google but found nothing.

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    Have you tried a system restore ? As I understand it, it should correct this sort of unexplained change.

    Do you literally mean a minute? or just a second or so?

    If it's only a second or two, then that could be "normal" operation.
    Depends on what else is being done in the background.
    Don't sweat a few seconds, if that's all it is.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Bob:

    It's not (necessarily) the couple seconds. There's a second here or there with PC's for a lot of things.

    It's more the "Change". Yesterday it drops out of site as soon as I move my mouse, today it hangs.

    ?

    There's a lot of times when "stuff" that happens ends up being a choice: If I set this option, then this also happens...Which do I think is more important?

    I'm just a bit apprehensive when something happens out of the blue, so to speak, for no perceived reason. Something Obviously causes these things. Is it a good thing? A bad thing? Isn't that why they introduced F.A.S.T., because bad things can happen if you don't check?

    Oh well, I'll survive guys. I just though that it might have been some setting I tripped inadvertently and needed to "put back."

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    The reason I asked is that in XP there is a 'fade' effect for menus and the like - the setting is the the display properties setup. Obviously that wouldn't be the cause if it literally hung in there for a whole minute <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Turn off the hiding of the task bar and run the machine for a while with it off. Later turn it back on, may just need a kick, to get it started again.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Strange, but OK I'll give that a shot.

    Leif, that feature's in Vista as well, and it's one of the first things I shut off. That, smooth scrolling, all those "visual enhancements.

    Thanks,
