What are "resource files" and where are the located?

Could not find a fix in the registry. Willing to look elsewhere.

Why not use another browser that offers more choice over the user interface ?

You won't find a way to turn it off.
Every browser does it, and will continue to do it.
Every browser does not do it, Opera does not if you turn of the Status bar there are no popups , there is an extension you can use if you do want them.

Those DLL files Internet Explorer uses, or inside the executable file it self. A mass of binary data, unless you know what you are looking for and how to change it. Good luck with that.

I was searching hard the web for a solution to avoid this nerving url-popups, now I found a way myself with a simple Javascript-function:

function nourl()
{
var coll = document.all.tags("A");
if (coll!=null)
{
for (i=0; i<coll.length; i++)
{
a=coll[i]
x=a.href;
a.name=x;
chg='<A onMouseOver="this.name=this.href; this.href=\'\'; this.hostname=\'\'; this.protocol=\'schmecks\';" onMouseOut="this.href=this.name" onClick="this.href=this.name" '
tx=a.outerHTML;
tx=tx.replace("<A ",chg);
a.outerHTML=tx;
}
}
}

This function moves the href to name and empties href on mouseover, so there is nothing to show for the browser
onclick the values are restored and the link is working well.
Calling the function with <body onload="nourl()> all the urls on the page do not popup anymore.

Adip,

I eagerly put this in. It works pretty good in IE8, but my IE9 still shows all URLs (from my anchor tag hrefs) in the IE9 status bar. Does it on yours? What's going on?

For example, consider a file named 2017.02.23 - Tokyo.Vacation.Hotel.jpg. You want to rename the file, so you press F2 or double-click it slowly. The caret will default to a position just before the extension. Now, in any sensible program, including in other parts of Windows (e.g. start menu search...
