Disable tooltips for Minimize, Restore and Close buttons.

This setting disables the tooltips that appear on the opening of a document, when you move the cursor over the Minimize, Restore or Close buttons on the top-right corner of the window.

Tweak for : Windows 98, Windows Me
By default, Windows show short information as tool tip when you hover mouse over the Minimize, Restore or Close buttons of a program or an application. This setting can disable this feature.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. Now, right-click and modify the Binary value “UserPreferenceMask”, in the right panel. The new value should correspond to the chart given below depending upon the default value on your system.

Remember:
Only the first number / character of the binary value should be changed. Say if the default data value in “9E 3E 07 80”, the changed value will be “1E 3E 07 80” i.e. the first number “9” should be replaced with “1”.

First Number/AlphabetReplaced Value
80
91
a2
b3
c4
d5
e6


However, if you want to enable tooltips back, change the value data to original.

The changes take effect after a restart or logoff.
