mouse hover file info gone ?

  chugby 19:54 01 Jul 2008

have XP pro on a computer, previously when hovering my mouse cursor over a file on desktop/explorer an info bubble would appear with basic file type/size/date details. Recently noticed this no longer comes up/works, ... know i can right click file to get same info but wanted to fix if can, any ideas ?

Control panel- performance and maintenance- file types in left pane- view tab and scroll down to 'show pop-up description for folder and desktop items', tick the box.
