This question already has an answer here:

Is there a way to speed up the animation time for switching between spaces? (Or maybe turning them off?). Preferably without buying a third party app. Maybe there's an option defaults.

I'm on Sierra 10.12.6.

Here's the short answer. If you want extremely fast animations, this is your defaults write command:

defaults write com.apple.dock expose-animation-duration -float 0.1

    This does nothing. – Roger Collins May 19 '18 at 21:47
  • This only works if you have a single screen, not multiple monitors. – Luke Davis Sep 5 '18 at 21:05
