JSI Tip 10558. How can I customize the information in the pop-up (InfoTip) that appears when you hover the cursor over a local file?


The information in the InfoTip pop-up, that is displayed when you hover the cursor over a local file, is controlled by the list of property names to is stored in the InfoTip Value Name, a string data type, at HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*.

To see the contents of the InfoTip Value Name:

1. Open a CMD.EXE window.

2. Using REG.EXE, built into Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and later operating systems, or installed from the Windows 2000 Support Tools, type the following command and press Enter:

reg query HKCR\* /V InfoTip|find "REG_SZ"
You can add, or remove, property name. See Default Property Names for a Web Catalog

If you wanted to add DocRevNumber, the current version number, type the following command and press Enter:

REG ADD HKCR\* /V InfoTip /T REG_SZ /F /D "prop:Type;DocAuthor;DocTitle;DocSubject;DocComments;Write;Size;DocRevNumber"
