OS Windows ME. When I hovered the Mouse Pointer over a Desktop Icon or a File Icon I used to get Tooltip Information Boxes, my computer has lost this ability. Can anyone help?

Have you turned them off using TweakUI? click here

To Stalion, I've tried your suggestion, I still have no tooltips. To VoG, I've been to Microsoft Downloads Centre, Teak UI or Powertoys do not exist for Windows ME. Thanks to both of you for your response, Cumano.

Open MY COMPUTER and open your C:\ Drive. Click on Tools menu, Folder Options, View Tab and enable SHOW POP UP DESCRIPTION FOR FOLDERS AND DESKTOP ICONS in the advanced settings....TT

To Terminator, Your suggested option is already set. Thank you for your response. Cumano

To VoG and Terminator, I now have TWEAK UI installed, but I can't find anything that will allow me to Enable or Disable the TOOLTIP option.

According to click here it is on the General tab. I have XP and TweakUI is a lot different than the 98/ME version.

To VoG, I put a tick in all boxes for items on the General I still didn't get any Tooltips. Thanks for your help.

try following TT's advise, but you say that the option he describes is already turned on. so I would turn it off, apply changes, reboot system and then turn it back on. windoze can somtimes get confused and say 'black' but do 'white' if you know what i mean.
