I am trying to remove or tweak the delay time in aero peek fading out. I am not referring to the time it takes before aero peek shows up after hovering over the task bar, instead i am talking about the amount of delay that occurs after you move your mouse away from the aero peek and before the preview disappears.

Do you wish to increase or decrease the delay?, mine is pretty fast when moving away. – Moab Feb 15 '11 at 20:48

There doesn't seem to be a way to adjust this, short of just disabling peek altogether.

Use regedit to browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced and create a new DWORD value DesktopLivePreviewHoverTime with base decimal and the delay value in milliseconds.


Update: Crap, I misread your question and answered the very question you weren't asking. I'm not aware of a way to change the timeout for the Aero peek view to go away.
