What Does that Program Do?

Posted By admin On November 12, 2004 @ 10:07 AM In Shortcuts & Keyboard Tricks,Uncategorized | No Comments

You probably know that if you hover over a program in your Toolbar or on your Desktop, it gives you the program name. Some programs like Google Chrome and Word also give you a description.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have this for all your Programs? Great news… if you have Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7, you can.

Right-click on a desktop shortcut or toolbar item and choose Properties. In the Properties dialog box, click the Shortcut tab. You’ll see a box marked Comment—go ahead and type your description there. In our tests here, we found that only application shortcuts (Chrome, Firefox, Outlook, etc.) included the Comments box, so this won’t work on all shortcuts.

Click OK.

There ya go. Now when you hover over the program, it has a description.
