Jerry, I think I know how to correct this, I remember seeing it somewhere and I was looking around. This may help
Go to control panel
Go to folder options
Go to view
"Show pop up description for folder and desktop icons"
This may help, I have unchecked mine and I am going to try some stuff, hold on.......
OK yes, it worked. I have a myriad of stuff on my desktop and when I put the mouse over the icon, the description of what it is is displayed. With this option above turned off, there is no information about the icon that shows up.
Let me know if this is what you mean and if it has helped. Best of this wonderful and awesome day, Cindi
