Turning off Window Animation on Windows CE, Windows Embedded Compact 7
Posted on November 4, 2014
You may notice that on some builds of Windows CE, Windows Embedded Compact 7, Windows Embedded Compact 2013 (and other Windows Embedded operating systems) the OS animates the showing (opening) of a form by drawing expanding rectangles animation. While some may find this animation appealing, the others would like to turn the animation off. So in case you fall into the latter category, here is how to.
Open any registry editor.
Find this registry key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\GWE]
Make sure the following key:value pair is present: "Animate"=dword:0
If “Animate” key is not present, add it and reboot.
