    Question How to disable the tooltips in frodoplayer

    Hey Frodo I got a question for you.........

    How to disable the white label??
    when you touch the bottons with the mouse pointer it display the description of what the botton does...(menu,volume,mute etc)......I see no reason to have this displaying what the botton is for when you have it onthe big botton itself!!

    Good question. I believe those are known as ToolTips.
    They also appear on touchscreens. Even with the mouse turned off, Windows knows its position and displays them.
    They can be useful, like when using an unfamiliar skin, but most of the time I'd like them turned off...

    Open up explorer, click Tools - Folder Options then click the View tab. Uncheck the "Show pop-up description... " option. I believe this should do the trick.

    I thought about this more in the morning and I realized that this doesn't fix the problem. It prevents the files and folders from poppup up a tooltip but the tooltips in FP still pop up on the buttons. Maybe the buttons are programmed in FP to show windows tooltips?

    I read there is something about using TweakXP to make the tooltips transparent but I don't get that bugged by it. What bugs me more is having a mouse pointer after coming back from hibernation!!!

    this i have found (but it describes Mac... is it the same in Windows??!)

    http://forums.macosxhints.com/archiv...p/t-28018.html

    "I thought tooltips like that were based upon the application, and not the OS?"

    "Indeed, tooltips are application-specific. The application developer has to choose to use tooltips or not, and to decide what text should appear for each item. Some applications have a preference item to disable tooltips."

    so far...
    Frodo is that right? Then plz disable these Tooltips
