Chapter 5. Windows Explorer Annoyances > SEARCH ANIMATIONS BEGONE

SEARCH ANIMATIONS BEGONE

The Annoyance:

I hated Clippy and you showed me how to dump it. [See "Give Clippy His Walking Papers (Really)" in Chapter 4.] How about eliminating the irritating animation in XP's Search feature?

The Fix:

Animation begone! In Windows Explorer, press F3 and you'll take your last look at the dumb animation. Click the Change Preferences link at the bottom of the Search pane, click "Without an animated screen character," and say adios to the creature.
