Use Sleep API to add pauses to your programs

Don’t use an empty For…Next loop to add pauses to your programs; instead, use the Sleep API function, that releases the CPU and lets other apps in the system effectively multitask:

Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32" (ByVal milliseconds As Long)' pause for 5 secondsSleep 5000

Note that this technique only works 32-bit editions of Visual Basic; there is no equivalent function in the Win16 API.
