Windows 7: Show EXIF data as tooltip

Show EXIF data as tooltip

When I was using XP I had installed a useful shell extension called Exif Infotip which would show EXIF data if you hovered the mouse pointer over an image file. That doesn't seem to work in Win7. Anybody know of a similar facility that will work in Win7 or even show the Exif data in the file Properties? Thanks for any advice.

Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate Build 7600

Hi rronaldson, welcome to SevenForums.:)

Have a look at the following link, - Exif Info Tip Download.

It provides link to a download of a version of EXIF InfoTip that is compatible with Windows 7.

Hope this helps.

Thanks V3xar. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work in Windows 7. In fact the code is the same as it always has been so I think they've just assumed it will work with Win7 ... unless anybody else has got it to work?

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there
I think there used to be a Windows explorer add in which added RAW image files to the Context menu. I used that in XP -- so I don't know if its still around - used to be called RAW viewer or something like that.

I now use Abobe Bridge / Photoshop so the EXIF is always presented .

I know the tooltip is probably what you are looking for but these days there are so many different Camera RAW formats it's probably not easy to extract the EXIF info in every case.

There is however a piece of freeware called irfanview --this might be suitable for what you want.

Download IrfanView

Thanks Jimbo45. I do have programs which show EXIF data. I guess I was a bit spoiled with the convenience of the old Infotip I used in XP. It was not especially RAW files that I was looking at but I agree that there are very many different RAW formats around. I've played around with RAW images from various cameras but I'm not sure I want to use them for most of my pictures.

Does Win 7 limit Copyright Exif metadata?
I updated the copyright data in my Canon EOS T4i/650D for the new year and was not seeing copyright metadata, usually in Exif area, when viewed on my Windows 7 desktop. I just bought this computer in December 2016 even though it's a 2011 system, it's fast for me. ExifTool utility doesn't see it. ...

When you open up a folder full of images and select Details view, Windows 7 displays a lot of information down at the bottom of the list about the image. All well and good, except that the ones that are shown by default are aimed mostly at photographers, and show things like camera model or lens...
