Ask Different is a question and answer site for power users of Apple hardware and software. It's 100% free, no registration required.

If you shift-click the minimize button or hold shift while restoring a window, you get the slow-motion genie or scale effect.

Is there a way to resume full speed after an accidental shift-click? Is there a way to disable the shift-click combination so that the transition always runs at full speed?

There is a way!

Open Terminal.app

Then, type this and type the following:

defaults write com.apple.finder FXEnableSlowAnimation -bool false

To make it go on again, just change the false to true.

Edit:

It seems that there is no way to disable the Slow Animation special effects on shift-click.

Unfortunately, this doesn't work in Snow Leopard. –  michaelmichael Jul 7 '11 at 14:25
    
Are you sure? I am almost positive that I did this on my computer - I will check when I get home... –  Odinulf Jul 11 '11 at 21:26
    
Yep, here's a question from SuperUser where other users report this not working in Snow Leopard. –  michaelmichael Jul 11 '11 at 21:41
