Accelerator/Command Hints Delay

The Accelerator Hint window appears automatically when you keep Ctrl or Shift key pressed for some time. There are other Hint windows as Command Hint or Start Page but only Accelerator Hint shown automatically after delayed command buttons press.

Default delay before Accelerator Hint comes up is 1,5 sec (1500 msec). You can change this default value by modifying XML file settings.xml directly:

<General>
     <AccelHintTimer>1500</AccelHintTimer> 
</General> 

Put bigger value to wait longer or 0 to disable at all.

Advanced user can set the time to 5 seconds (5000) or more. Set it to 8000, so this pops up only if you really want it to.

Here is a screenshot compilation with three command hints dialogs, so you can see what we talking about:
