    Hi
    Is there an easy way of getting rid of the bubble menus that appear as you
    hover over a Windows icon or folder?
    I'm using MS Windows XP

    To me they nearly always get in the way of trying to read something other
    than telling me what's in the folder.

    Many thanks

    Are you comfortable editing your registry?

    In Windows Explorer, bring down Tools Menu, select Folder Options /
    View, and at the bottom of the window, second one up, uncheck "show
    pop-up for folder, etc., etc."

    That takes care of the Desktop, and items in folders, but there are reg
    hacks for some of the others. That's why I asked it if the OP is comfortable
    editing the registry. I wasn't gonna take the time to look them up if he
    didn't want to do the hacks. About the only balloon tips I never did get rid
    of were the system tray and taskbar. Maybe I'll try again <g>
