    'File Tips' pop up wont go away (Win XP)

    When using windows to browse the files in a folder, hovering the mouse over a file icon brings up a box with various items of info about the file. I want to get rid of this as I find it distracting. How may I do this? I looked at Post: 341645 which explains what I want to get rid of.

    Thanks in Advance.

    Start Windows Explorer.
    Select Tools | Folder Options...
    Activate the View tab.
    Clear the check box "Show pop-up description for folder and desktop items."
    Click OK.
