Windows Pointer Options
Hello, I'm trying to find out how to turn off the information that appears
when you hold your pointer over virtually everything. The information is
rarely useful and is constantly in the way. I've been going a little crazy
with this terrible feature because I'm constantly fighting to see what I'm
working on and navigate through programs, sites, etc.. Please help - any
way to disable this through windows or download a program to stop it would be
great. I pretty much don't care how much damage a program would cause to my
machine as long as I can see what I'm working on again.
