Add or edit tool tips to a new file type.

This setting enables you to add or edit tool tip to a new file type, which does not have a tool tip.

Tweak for : Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows 2000, Windows Vista
Windows displays information text if the mouse is hovered on a file or folder. This text is the information about the file which is called tool tip. If a new file type is created on your system you may add a customized tool tip, if it doesn’t exists, or change the existing one, if the tool tip already exists.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. Now, move to the file extension (like “.aso”) on which you would like to create/edit the tool tip. Here, copy the value data of the “Default” String value of the file extension, and search the same in the hierarchical tree structure.

You can create a String value “InfoTip”, if this value does not exist. Now enter the info tip you would like to show with the file when mouse is hovered over it.

The changes take effect after a restart or logoff.

Apply registry settings according below given steps of screenshots with related changes.
