(Found in BOL under auto-hide)

1. Close SQL Server Management Studio.
2. Open this file in a text editor C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\SQL Server Management Studio\Settings\CurrentSettings-2006-02-01.vssettings
3. Find the animations and reset it to false- <PropertyValue name="Animations">false</PropertyValue>
4. Open SQL Server Management Studio and it should now animate at your desired speed.


I tried it and it worked for me.
