We're all different with the types of files and folders we utilize and store on our computer. Some users may have Image and other files that are simply downloaded from the Internet, whilst others create text files, that contain sensitive Information and named according to Its content. When you hover over such files, the name Is displayed which can reveal exactly what It contains. As such, In this tutorial, I will show you how to disable pop-up descriptions for all files and folders.
Before I begin, here's what I'm referring to. I have a text file In my folder named Windows 10 Tips, and upon hovering over the folder with my computer mouse, Its Infotip (pop-up description) Is displayed as per the Image below.
So what's the big deal about this you ask? Well, absolutely nothing If the file Is not named as anything that may contain personal and/or sensitive data. Have a closer look at the above Image. In order to easily Identify what my folder contains when hovering over It with the mouse, I've named my text file Mega Login Credentials- which has my username & password to the Mega file hosting website.
Given I can (obviously) see this, so too can any other user who's sharing my computer and as a result, they'll Instantly Identify what my folder contains without opening Its contents. To prevent this, I will demonstrate how to completely disable the pop-up description for files and folders In only a couple of steps. So without further delay, let's see how this Is done.
