 Speed up system menus in Xfce


If you find that menus go to slow on your computer, you can speed that process up by setting the delay to zero.

 

Create a file named .gtkrc-2.0 in your home directory and put in the following lines in it, if the file already present just put these lines in it: 

 

gtk-menu-popup-delay = 0
gtk-menu-popdown-delay = 0
gtk-menu-bar-popup-delay = 0
gtk-enable-animations = 0
gtk-timeout-expand = 0

 

Save the file, close it, logout and login back.

 

Maybe you can encounter one downside: the icons can come with a delay but I think that something like that only can happen with a very old computer ;)

This make a difference on every computer. I've did this with my own computer with avarage specs, an Intel i3 processor with 4GB of RAM and also with a Intel Pentium 3 with something about 550 MB of RAM, wich is low-end specs these days, and I see a great difference on both computers ;)

Would this make any difference on a low end machine? or is this something that is done by default for a reason?

You should perhaps explain why it speeds up and if there are any side effects. Otherwise helpful :-)
