JSI Tip 10559. How can I customize the information in the Windows XP pop-up (QuickTip) that appears when you hover the cursor over a file on a network share?

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

To see the content of the QuickTip Value Name:

1. Open a CMD.EXE window.

2. Type the following command and press Enter:

reg query HKCR\* /V QuickTip|find "REG_SZ"

You can add, or remove, property names. See Default Property Names for a Web Catalog

If you wanted to set QuickTip to the same property names as InfoTip plus the addition of the current version number, type the following command and press Enter:

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