Delayed or slowed typing in office

Every time I get a new computer I have to make some adjustments.

One that kills me is the delayed or slow typing in Outlook and Excel. Other office products like word also have the issue.

It’s caused by animations in windows 8.1

Search “edit system environment variables”

Advanced tab.

Performance settings.

Uncheck animate controls and elements.

You could uncheck a bunch of other stuff as well to make windows feel more snappy.
