Disable Windows 8 Start Screen Animations

These animations do look ‘pretty’ but after a while I find that they just get annoying, here is a quick tweak you can do to disable them alltogether.

  • In your start screen search type computer
  • Right click on computer and select properties
  • Click advanced system settings
  • Select settings under performance

Disable start screen animations

  • Uncheck the first in the list: Animate controls and elements inside windows
  • Click OK

Disable start screen animations

That will remove all the animations from your start screen and it should also make it run a little faster, to make the animations run again simply go and check the “Animate controls and elements inside windows” and select ok.
