Speed Up Window Transitions

The window animations that accompany opening and saving files or minimizing windows in the OS X Finder are very detailed, smooth and pretty, but sometimes you might want to open or save many files in a row without the slight slow down of seeing the same speed of the animations over and over again. You can make a change to the duration of these transitions in Terminal, so that they can be practically instant or, if you wish, very slow.

Run Terminal, and type the following:
defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSWindowResizeTime "time value"

Type in any value from 0.001 (instant) to 0.4 (very slow) without quotation marks, of course.
