Show Full Details Of Shortcut Infotips

A commonality with many computational users, Is to create an array of desktop shortcuts of their favorite programs and applications, thereby they can access the lot via the one location. When you hover over a given shortcut with your computer's mouse, It will only display the shortcut's target location. As such, In this tutorial, I will show you how to display full details of shortcut Infotips.

Before I make a start, here's what I'm referring to. I've navigated to my PC's desktop, and hovered over the shortcut named This PC. By default, It will only show Its target location as per the Image below.

If you'd like to know the exact time and date of when your shortcuts were created as well as their size, by simply hovering over with your computer mouse, then this tutorial Is for you. I will demonstrate how to show these Infotips, by using a neat little Registry file.

All that's required on your part, Is to double-click the Registry file, follow a couple of prompts and the shortcut Infotips will be applied thereafter. I have provided the download links to the Registry file, at the end of this article. So without further delay, let's get this tutorial started.

Step One:

Once you've downloaded the file, extract Its contents to a folder of your choice and then double-click the Show Info Tips.reg file. It will prompt whether to add the entries to the Windows Registry, so click Yes.

Step Two:

A message will be returned, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Windows Registry, so hit OK to finalize the process. The shortcut Infotips have now taken effect. We'll check It out In the next step.

Step Three:

After restarting Windows Explorer, I've now hovered over my shortcut named This PC, and as you can see, the Infotip displays Its creation date and also Its size. Perfect!

Last Step:

In the event you've changed your mind and want to remove the shortcut Infotips, simply double-click the Remove Info Tips.reg file, and hit Yes.

Final Thoughts:

There's no right or wrong as to whether this tweak Is of benefit, but rather based on one's overall usability. I for one, like to know everything there Is pertaining to my files stored on the hard disk, so their capacity (size) and the time of when they were created, Is certainly welcomed- particularly when such details are accessible by simply hovering over with the mouse.

Use any of the links below to download the aforementioned Registry files.
