Re: Balloons


Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

How does that change the time value? I presume the key is that last
line. I've never messed with the registry by hand. Back in the Bronze
Age, it was easy to get hold of a DOS manual, and learn to tweak (Peter
Norton had one of the best), but, being my own administrator back at the
house, I've always been reluctant to risk crippling my system, even with
Restore available.

Juanita,

Yes, for XP you need to create and execute a file that will change a
value in your registry. Here's a complete text from an old E-Mail
message explaining how to do it, compliments of "The Elf" who once used
to be on this list.

Here is how to increase the time balloon tips stay on your computer.

Copy the below in note pad and save it. Now find the file you just
created and rename it to "changeballoontime.reg: and enter on it and say
yes when prompted if you want to add the information to your registry.

Copy what is between start copying and end copying; but do not copy the
words start copying and end copying.

start copying

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Tra
yNotify]
"BalloonTip"=dword:0000000a

end copying

Hi Ted,
In Windows 7 it's under "Ease of Access". Type Ease of Access in to the
search box in the start prompt. In the Ease of Access Center go to "Make
it
easier to focus on tasks" and hit enter.
Near the end of the options that come up is a setting to adjust the time
that those balloons stay on screen.
I adjusted mine to 1 minute which gives me enough time to find them and
click on them.

Anybody remember how to handle those little message balloons? I've been
going through old What's New files trying to find the tip with no luck.
Those little suckers always get away before I can find them, let alone
click.
