    All I know is I never encountered this issue in Windows 7, which I used for the better part of 6 years. And because of the needs described in the original post, I definitely would have noticed if it was there.

    For good measure, I tested a Win 7 system I had access to today and could not reproduce the issue.

    I'm pretty sure this is a Win 10 bug. Possible it was present in 8 as well, but I skipped 8.

    What's the best way to send a bug report?

    It only occurs randomly (but often enough that I remember it).

    A variation is that when you select an item in a folder, you see tooltips for all items, except for the selected one.
    This happened again on my W7 install yesterday.

    Have you tried the Feedback Hub App?

    I have noticed tooltips not showing up when hovering over files themselves throughout Windows Explorer as well as the Start Menu folder hierarchy in past versions of Windows. It was always a minor annoyance.

    The behavior that's the subject of this thread does seem similar in a way. Yet I never encountered it prior to Win 10.

    I submitted a report via the Feedback Hub. Here's hoping.
