Labels in IE7

How can I turn off the labels that appear everytime my cursor goes over a button please?

are you talking about the lables that appear on this site? if so you can't stop them. I know they are annoying, but they help keep the site free of charge.

No rawprawn

When my cursor moves over eg the Google button a yellow box appears saying "Go to Google Home page" or on the Bookmarks it says "Sign in to access your Google Bookmarks"

Can I stop these messages appearing?

Use Tweak UI click here From general uncheck enable tooltips.

Hi anskyber

Thanks for that but no joy unfortunately.

Hmm, it usually works but not always for everyone. The only other solution I am aware of come as various registry fixs which I am reluctant to suggest given I have not used them personally.

You may want to have a look here for yourself.

Did you reboot after using Tweak UI, it sometimes is needed. Good luck.

I rebooted but to no avail. I have checked out the sites suggested but looks like I'll just have to get on with it as it is!!

Thanks again
