    Quick Launch et al

    Many of my shortcut Tooltips now show Type : Shortcut and Size : xxx bytes when the cursor is on them. I don't want either of these, but I do want the name of the app the sc points to. How do I edit the info' in the tooltip box in Win 2k? Properties and Comment thereunder do not do it.

    what do you mean by shortcut tooltips
    if you are talking about the quick launch toolbar just right click on the icon go to properties and then the comment section

    No, I meant any shortcut inc. those on the desktop. The tooltips only display the two lines I mentioned. And I repeat : Properties/ Comments has no effect. Also on the RClick Menu context, Rename brings up the correct name - it just doesn't display where I want it - when the cursor hovers on the icon.

    Thanks, Jerry. I have now found out what was wrong. In the Registry was a null-file key named InfoTip. Deleting that returned the name to my shortcuts.
    Cheers
