I think this change occurred when I upgraded from Office 2003 to Office 2010. I am using Windows XP SP3 OS.
Before, I could set the properties for a Word document inside word or by right clicking on the file in Explorer, choosing Propertie4s and then edit the properties. Then when I "moused over" the file name in Explorer, the "tool tip" type of window would pop up showing the properties I entered.
What has changed is that if I set the properties using either method above, I can still see them *until* I edit and save the document in Word. Then, all the properties entered do not show up.
Is there a fix for this?
