    STEP 1: On the Start Button type "regedit" to launch Windows 8 Registry.

    STEP 2: Now Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Control Panel > Desktop and Locate the "MenuShowDelay" option on the Main Window, right click it and Choose "Modify".

    STEP 3: A dialog Box appears and enter the value from 0 to 4000 in the field value data. Lesser the number less the delay. '0' is the default Value.

    Hello,
    • Disable Clear Type through CP: Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Display > Adjust ClearType > Uncheck "Turn on ClearType".
    • Disable Clear Type through Group Policy: User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer > Internet Control Panel > Advanced Page > Turn off Clear Type set to "Enabled"
    • Disable Font Smoothing: Control Panel > System and Security > System > Advanced system settings > Performance > Uncheck "Smooth edges of screen fonts"
    • Disable Segoe through registry:
      HKLM > Software > Microsoft > Windows NT > Current Version > Fonts
    • "Segoe UI (TrueType)" = ""
    • "Segoe UI Bold (TrueType)" = ""
    • "Segoe UI Bold Italic (TrueType)" = ""
    • "Segoe UI Italic (TrueType)" = ""
    • "Segoe UI Light (TrueType)" = ""
    • "Segoe UI Light Italic (TrueType)" = ""
    • "Segoe UI Semibold (TrueType)" = ""
    • "Segoe UI Semibold Italic (TrueType)" = ""
    • "Segoe UI Semilight (TrueType)" = ""
    • "Segoe UI Semilight Italic (TrueType)" = ""

      HKLM > Software > Microsoft > Windows NT > Current Version > FontSubstitutes

      "Segoe UI" = "Tahoma"
    • Attempt to make Antialias tolerable through registry:

      HKEY_USERS > HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-524518832-3057460834-3709093322-1001 > Software > Microsoft > Avalon.Graphics > DISPLAY5

      "ClearTypeLevel" = "0"
      "EnhancedContrastLevel" = "0"
      "TextContrastLevel" = "1"
    • Attempted to apply old dll wrapper fix that worked for IE9 on Win7, as found here:https://sites.google.com/a/softwaren...te-dll-wrapper
    • Attempted to use Windows Aero (Tahoma) fix that worked for Win7, but it would not run:http://www.neowin.net/forum/topic/89...o-tahoma-font/
    While the above steps helped a lot, I still have antialiased text on the Start Menu, Taskbar, Program Title Bar, and -- most obnoxiously -- IE10. This is not a driver issue. It has nothing to do with my graphics drivers, which are all up to date. This has to do with the fact that anything but aliased text gives me a headache/eyestrain. I don't want to make ClearType "look nice," I want it gone completely. I should not have to jump through hoops to disable a feature that, according to Bing, some 173,000 others would also like to squash.

    Thanks.

    hi there,

    You can easily accomplish the task by following steps :

    * go to RUN [open RUN by pressing and holding Window logo key on keyboard and then pressing R i.e. WINDOW + R]
    * type regedit into the text box of RUN
    * now Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Control Panel > Desktop
    * Find the MenuShowDelay in the Main Window
    * Right click it and Choose Modify
    * hit OK
    * enter the desired delay
    on the scale of 0-4000 considering that 0 = no delay at all.

    Now, save and exit.

    Best of Luck!!
