Watch Windows Aero in Slowmotion

Here’s a very good trick for Windows Vista Aero users! If you are using Windows Aero, you can use this Registry trick to slow down the animations (i.e. maximize/minimize) when you hold down the Shift key on your keyboard. You have to modify the Registry a little to achieve this!

The advantages of using this trick is that not only does this allow you to see the animations clearer but it also leaves the Flip 3D on the screen even after you let go of the [Ctrl] + [Windows Key] + [Tab] combination. Normally what happens is that Flip 3D exists the screen as soon as you leave this key combination. Whenever you minimize or maximize or close a window, if you hold the Shift key down you will be able see how impressive Vista is in slow motion. Follow these steps:

Click on the Start button. Then open the Run dialog box (Windows Key + R combination will also open the Run dialog box).
Type regedit.exe, click OK. If User Account Control (UAC) prompts you to allow the action, click Continue.
Now, navigate to this key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM.
In the right side of the Registry editor window, right-click on an empty space and select New
Now, from this context menu that appears, select DWORD (32-bit) Value.
Name this new DWORD value as AnimationsShiftKey.
Now, Double-click on this newly created DWORD and give it a value of 1.
Click on OK and close the Registry Editor.
To see the changes, Log off of Windows and then log in back again.
Now, Just hold the Shift key and minimize or maximize a window. You will notice that the animation is slowed down and it looks very nice too!
If you want to get back to normal and stop this effect, then simply do not press the Shift key on your keyboard while using Flip3D or Aero.
