Generally, InfoTips are used to display advanced item information. When mouse is hovered over “Control Panel” icon on Desktop or Windows Explorer, a short text is displayed corresponding to it in a yellow box. This useful information is the brief detail about “Control Panel”. To change the default information of “Control Panel” use this registry setting.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. Now, right-click and modify the Expandable String value “InfoTip” with the text content that you want to appear as “Control Panel” InfoTip.

However, if you want to get the default value back, replace the data with saved contents.

The changes take effect after a restart or logoff.

Important:
We recommend that you copy the data of the “InfoTip” value in a .txt file and keep it at a safe location, so that you may recover it when required.
