  1. Press Win+R keys on your keyboard. The "Run" dialog will be displayed.
  2. Type the following:
    SystemPropertiesAdvanced.exe
    Then press Enter.
  3. You will see the following window:

  5. Uncheck the first check box "Animate controls and elements inside windows" as shown in the image above.

That's all. That setting affects Start screen animations as well.
