  • Windows Bubbles Q.

    I don't know about you, but I am always frustrated when those little bubbles appear over my icon tray (bottom right of screen) and in one of my computer magazines I found this tip (see attachment) but for the life of me I don't know how to go about applying it.

    Do I have to type the words after 'Under' (8th line) somewhere or do I have to find the area in my windows registry (double dutch to me!!!!)

    Can anyone help PLEASE.....

          Hi Mary...

          I'm not one of the gurus, but here go my two cents....

          Those bubbles are usually helpful. They are trying to tell you something about your system you need to give attention to. Even if they are annoying, don't go in the registry unless you know what you are doing, and if you trust what you are being told. Those bubbles are not nearly as annoing as the problem you will have if you mess with the registry.

          Trust me on this one. Oh, and the reason they tell you to back up the registry first, is because even the ones that know what they are doing can mess up royally. And no, you do not type that stuff, that is where you have to go to make the changes.

              One easy way to get rid of those pop up balloons, is to get yourself a copy of Microsofts own powertoys for Windows.
              (available freely from MS, but check that you get the version that suits your own MS Windows).
              One of these "toys" is Tweakui, which has a button to click to turn off those pop ups, (and a lot more that you can choose from too).

                Many thanks for the replies & maybe you're right ~~ I should just leave well alone as this is a new laptop & I would kick myself if I created a brand new problem.

                Have a good weekend ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
