Everyone and their brother has asked how to make the "desktop alerts" stay on the screen longer. I want to know how to get it to show up earlier?
Let me explain briefly: I typically will receive an email (mail check set for 1 minute) and I will often read, reply, and delete the email before I get my desktop alert! It usually comes around 30 seconds after I get the email. This is annoying and frustrating when the desktop alert comes and I have already moved on to other things. Perpetually I am saying "I already dealt with that email, why are you alerting me after the fact?"
So I want to have the desktop alert show up as soon as I receive the email. I checked the registry key and there is only opacity setting and I have only found the TimeOn key to make it stay longer. Anyone know of a setting/key that would affect the delay time?
