Windows 7: Comment for program do not display on mouse over in the Start Menu

15 Jul 2014   #11

Windows 7 Professional 64bit

Thanks everyone for all your suggestions. I have tried this feature on four different Windows 7 64-bit machines and none of the machines had this feature.

I think that it is either a bug in Windows 7 64-bit or all four computers I tested are broken (which I seriously doubt!). Or, maybe the Windows documents are incorrect?

In any case, this feature simply does not work...

W7 Ultimate SP1, LM18.2 MATE, W10 Home, #All 64 bit

I have W7 Ultimate SP1 (64 bit) installed.

On my PC, the tooltips sometimes refuse to appear.
What normally fixes it for me, is to click on any other file and then hover the mouse pointer over the file I'm interested in.

It's like Windows is confused about which open window is actually the active one.
Then again, maybe I'm the one who is confused.

Display Favorites as a link not a menu in Start Menu
I think the only thing that will work here is a registry hack. By default if you set the start menu properties to display "favorites" it does so by a menu. It does not give you a choice to display this as a link or a menu like it does for other folders. Is there a way to fix this?
