In your resource, add another \n and see what happens. For instance :
&File\nOpen\nFile

So the tooltip should show Open and File in two lines.

You can set the maximum width of a tooltip etc.

First you need (a pointer to) your tooltip object.  I you create your own, you already one.  If you use EnableToolTips then you can get a pointer to it with:

CToolTipCtrl* pToolTip = AfxGetThreadState()->m_pToolTip;

Then you can adjust width, popup delay and time etc like this

pToolTip->SendMessage(TTM_SETMAXTIPWIDTH, 0, 160);
pToolTip->SendMessage(TTM_SETDELAYTIME, TTDT_AUTOPOP, 2000);
pToolTip->SendMessage(TTM_SETDELAYTIME, TTDT_INITIAL, 200);
pToolTip->SendMessage(TTM_SETDELAYTIME, TTDT_RESHOW, 200);
