Control Windows Animation on Handheld Devices (Pocket PC)

The animation feature can make animated Windows look good, but it can also substantially slow down your handheld device. This setting allows you to control whether the function is enabled or disabled.

Open your registry and find or create the key below.

Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value, called "Animate" and set it according to the value data below.

Exit your registry; you may need to restart or log out of Windows for the change to take effect.
