When you are navigating the file system in Finder and pause on a folder, after a brief pause the folder opens.  Is there a way to change the length of that pause?

Don't ask ;-)  I have my reasons for changing it.

Thanks,

Jon.

Click on the desktop to make sure you are in Finder. Pull down the Finder menu to Preferences. In the General tab, at the bottom, change the delay for "spring loaded folders".
