Uh... you know, that little box that appears when you put mouse over something (like a folder) that shows the info of whatever the mouse is sitting on? I guess you're calling it "pop-up descriptions", but the offical name for it is "Tooltip" - at least from everything I could find via googling. And for the record, thats all I'm doing... putting my mouse over something (taskbar icon, desktop icon, etc etc), and it appears after a second or two. I dont want it to appear at all.
The registry edit does nothing, like I said. Still get them in Internet Explorer when I put my mouse over something (like a search bar, the buttons here, etc).
If there isnt a way to disable them (which I dont think there is, but cant hurt to ask), has any one been able to find a way to increase the time it takes for them to appear like you can with the taskbar preview pane?
ETA: Went looking, found the mouseover tutorial that is suppose to increase the hover time before the tooltip appears. Set it to the max value (4000), logged off and back on... didnt change anything.
