Tip Control Windows
XP Transition Effects for Menus and Windows

video effects. To get best performance, you disable the effects. If you hardware
can handle it, enable ClearType font rendering.. Try it
yourself but to my eyes, text is much sharper.
To enable:

  • Click Start
  • Click Control Panel
  • Click Display applet
  • Click the Appearance tab
