    No tooltips appear


    Looks like I spoke too soon - it's gone again. Seems to come and go randomly, sometimes works again after reboot and sometimes not.

    What exact issue are you having in case something else may be involved?

    For now, you might also see if this below may help.

    Already tried the reset, worked for a short time, then stopped working. No tooltips appear when hover mouse pointer over icons on right side of system tray (battery, wifi, volume control)

    I'm not sure that will be related to what the tutorial is for.

    As a test, see if restarting explorer when they stop working helps.

    Restarted Windows Explorer, tooltips working again - except that the wifi tooltip just shows "internet access" - does not specify the network as it did previously.

    I'm afraid that I'm not sure what else to suggest for that.

    It's now identifying the network again. That's what I mean about Win 10 - it's just flaky, never know what's gonna go wrong next.

    Update: After a restart the tooltips are no longer working.

    I'm not sure what may be causing it, but since restarting explorer helps, the tutorial below will make it easy to restart explorer as needed for now until a solution can be found.

    Thanks Brink. It's continuing to occur. Sometimes it will start working again after a reboot, then stop working for no apparent reason. Very frustrating...
