    I love using macs Spring-loaded folders feature but in Snow Leopard 10.6 when you place your pointer over the folder to spring open it starts blinking. I'm sure some may like this feature but for me its annoying. Is there a way to turn the blinking off and just have the folder highlight steadily like they did in Leopard and Tiger? Thx in advance.

    Finder -> Preference,
    use the level bar on the lowest part of 'General'
    to control the pop up folder timing

    Yeah I tried that. But is I'm paralyzed from neck down and control the pointer using a trackball I operate with a mouthstick. My control isn't accurate or quick enough and end up in the wrong folder frequently with the speed set to minimum. Was hoping there was a terminal command or something to disable the blinking. I do appreciate the reply and suggestion though. :)
