I notice that there is a tiny delay between pressing super key and app menu emergence. Is there a way to reduce it to zero ms ?

Moreover it is very uncomfortable, that keyboard arrow keys focus is missing when the menu appears (so need to press multiple times arrow keys to catch focus). Is there any workarounds for this ? Some tweaks maybe ?

Thanks is advance!


Need to notice, that alt+tab switcher and super-key app preview switcher is a different presentations.


I tried https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/277/impatience/ but it didn't helped to solve the problem. Maybe due to already usage of gnome-tweak-tool - animation off. I'm still in search - how to completely remove any animations and delays from gnome-shell ?
