Folder Comments in Tooltips
Ever since I moved from XP to Vista, I've noticed that folder descriptions or comments do not appear in tooltips. In Windows XP, you could display custom comments or descriptions in folders by modifying the respective folder's desktop.ini file as follows:
This would display the folder's icon as specified in the IconResource part of the configuration file and put the InfoTip value in the folder's tooltip.
In Windows Vista, modifying the desktop.ini file allows you to change the folder icon. You cannot however get the infotip part to display in the folder's tooltip.
I tried using programs like Microangelo OnDisplay to do this but it still did not work. The desktop.ini file is updated alright but the comment is not displayed in the tooltip.
Is there anything I'm doing wrong or is it a registry hack that needs to be applied?
