    By default, controls and elements use animation in Windows.

    Some examples of controls and elements animation are:
    • Slow fade effect of scrollbar arrows
    • Slow fade effect of buttons and tabs on dialog boxes
    • Cyclic pulsating effect on the default button
    This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable animate controls and elements for your account in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

    Automatically pick an accent color from background does not work.

    After testing 明天的冬瓜's solution, I found that the task bar color only fails to update when the "Animate controls and elements inside windows" option is enabled.

    Control Panel> System and Security> System> Advanced System Settings> "Advanced" Tab> Performance: "Settings..."> "Visual Effects" Tab> DISABLE "Animate controls and elements inside windows" check-box

  3. Office disables Windows animations

    I've had this problem with Office 2007 and still have it with Office 365 under Windows 10 on different computers. Under certain conditions, opening multiple Office documents stops Windows animations from working, even though Windows settings still shows
    that animations are enabled.

    To replicate the problem:

    • In an Office document (I've tried it with both Excel and Word) insert a link to another Office document.
    • Follow the link
    • When the linked document opens, Windows animations no longer work - you need to go to Windows' Display settings and turn 'Show animations in Windows' off and back on again to restore animations.
    Note:

    • The problem is only apparent when linking from one Office document to another - linking to a PDF file, for example, does not cause this problem.
    • I haven't checked whether ALL animations stop working - the one I've noticed for sure is the animation when switching from one virtual desktop to another.
    Although not a life-threatening bug, this is still an inconvenience.

    How to disable UI animation in Windows 10 Mobile

    How can I disable UI animations (like selecting an app from a list, launching an app etc.) in Windows 10 Mobile (10186.11)?

    On desktop SKUs of Windows 10, it is in the System control panel - Advanced - Performance, and in the Settings app - Ease of Access - Other options. However, I could not find that setting in Windows 10 Mobile.

    Is there a way how to turn it off? My eyes are not happy of these animations (disturbing, needs to constantly refocusing etc.).

    1. On the File tab, click Options.
    2. In the Options dialog box, click Advanced.
    3. In the list of available options, click to select the Disable hardware graphics acceleration check box.

    Method 2: Update the graphic drivers: Please follow the steps mentioned in the article:

    How to disable UI animation in Windows 10 Mobile

    920, but I do not expect it should be phone model specific.

    The issue is I could not find a way how to disable animations built in the Windows 10 Mobile UI like "Opening an application", "Returning to Start", "Opening an application from app list", "Returning to app list", "Settings animation", "Resuming background
    app". To better understand what kind of animations I mean see .
