Tutorial :How do you increase Internet Explorer 7's “Select as you type” timeout for comboboxes?



Question:

In Internet Explorer 7, you can select options from comboboxes by typing the first few letters of the value you're looking for. However, some people in our organisation are a bit slow and can't type their selection quick enough, with the result that the timeout is triggered and the "select as you type" process starts all over again.

Example: If I type A-R-M-A (looking for Armadale) then wait half a second and type D, I'll get selections beginning with the letter D.

What I want to do is increase this timeout to allow for slow typers. (We're in a corporate environment so rolling out these changes to all machines won't be a problem).


Solution:1

These timeouts are quite often connected with double-click times. Increase it and check whether timeout changes.
