I have been using windows 7 for some time, and I noticed that my toolbar (which I have hidden) have been acting a little bit weird. Normally, when I hover my cursor over it, it gently and smoothly slides up into view. Now it just instantly appears.

Is there a setting to this? I am afraid I cannot find it.

This is controlled by the same visual effects setting that determines whether or not menus slide or just pop in/out.

  1. Go to System Properties (right-click on Computer and select Properties, or hit Win+Pause)
  2. In the left-hand pane, click on "Advanced system settings"
  3. Under "Performance", click on "Settings..."
  4. Check the "Fade or slide menus into view" option
  5. Click "OK" twice
