Windows 10: tooltips for videos?

  1.    14 Nov 2015 #1

    tooltips for videos... can i change them?

    hi... does anyone know what controls the tooltips for files and videos?

    for mp4 it shows the size and the length
    and whether it's available offline
    for webm and flash it shows the size and the date
    and i'd like to make them all the same...

    i tried looking for it in the registry and couldn't find it....
    does anyone know where it is... where i can change it?

    i miss how windows 7 used to show it at the bottom
    though it was still the same thing...

    It doesn't appear at the bottom, but you can click the View tab of File Explorer/Windows Explorer and click the 3rd button
    "details pane" to open the details pane at the right side of the window.

    OldNewExplorer can move it to the bottom if you'd like.

    Make a system restore point in case something goes wrong: System Restore Point - Create in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    Download OldNewExplorer
    Download 7-Zip
    Double-click 7-Zip installer and install it.
    Extract files from OldNewExplorer.rar using 7-Zip.
    Right-click oldnewexplorercfg.exe and click "run as administrator".
    Check "Show details pane on the bottom".
    Click "Install" button.
    Click Close.
    Restart PC.

    If something goes wrong, you can always restore the restore point. We can help you out if that happens.
