    I want to go back to win 7 style tooltips - words not pictures


    I can't find any way to do that. I HATE graphical crap on my desktop - and there is absolutely no reason in this world to pop up pics of what's open. The tooltips for unopen apps are words; I want the open apps that way too. Anyone have any ideas?

    One bump, just in case it got buried by other posts. Anyone have an idea?
