I'd like for my dockable windows to hide a little faster than they do now. Is this a user or application setting within ArcMap or ArcGIS?

More details: I'm specifically interested in ArcMap, but if it's one setting for the entire ArcGIS desktop--I'll take it.

You might be able to turn off docking shadows completely if I read this correctly. That might increase the close speed a little. –  Michael Todd Jul 27 '11 at 20:15
    
Good suggestion, but that didn't work for me. –  Jay Cummins Jul 27 '11 at 20:20

I just figured out that hitting the escape key will immediately hide the window--good enough workaround for me. –  Jay Cummins Jul 27 '11 at 20:21
    
@JayCummins, I'd post and accept that as the answer. True it doesn't address the Q as asked, but sometimes the best answer is one the comes from outside the initially conceived scope. ;-) –  matt wilkie Nov 14 '11 at 20:02

If there was it would probably be in the Advanced ArcMap Settings utility. As it's not, I don't think this is possible -- unless there is a .NET-wide registry setting somewhere that the ArcGIS applications also use.

What does this have to do with .NET? –  Petr Krebs Sep 26 '11 at 6:10
    
I thought the ArcGIS 10 applications were in .NET now. –  blah238 Sep 26 '11 at 19:25
