Windows Explorer Bubble Popup

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
Hello all,

Usualy from hovering with the mouse pointer over the visible icons of the notofication area of the windows taskbar a Bubble Popup is displayed with respective information. It will also remain visible for a short time and for as long as the mouse pointer is not moved away.

I have a strange request that is to keep the Bubble Popup displayed for as long as required even so when the mouse curser moved away.

Meaning that a user wishes to keep that Bubble Popup displayed while opening or working on another application.

I found information related to the time the Bubble Popup could remain displayed but once the mouse moved away the Bubble Popup disapears.

I believe that by design such feature might not exist under Vista Professional, and MSIE 7

Kind regards
