Disable Tool Tips in Vista

Satheesh C B | Sunday, April 05, 2009 | 0 comments

In Vista when the user places the mouse pointer over a particular icon on the desktop, a tool tip pops up. This tool tip displays information about the icon.At a particular time, you might already know what each icon on your screen represents and hence the information might be unnecessary.
If you feel you no longer require tool tips, you can use this simple registry tweak to disable it. To do so:

extend  Click “Start” and type in “regedit” in the “Search” box.
extend  Browse to the “HKEY_CURRENT_USER|Software|Microsoft|Windows|CurrentVersion |Explorer |Advanced” registry key.

extend  On the right pane, click the “ShowInfo Tip” registry key.
extend  Click “Edit | Modify”.
extend  Change the value to “0” in the “Valuedata” field.
extend  Close the registry editor window and reboot your system for the changes to take effect.
