JSI Tip 2084. Some shortcuts have tips associated with them, but some don't?

When your mouse is over a shortcut, Windows 2000 sometimes displays a tip?

The 'tip' is just the Comment you can see on the Shortcut tab, when you right-click the shortcut and click Properties.

NOTE: If you wish to change a Microsoft generated 'tip', it is your prerogative.
