    Default How do you change the tooltips for start menu links?

    I've figured out how to replace the links on the right side of the Windows start menu with those of my choice thanks to one of the guides on this site, but I don't know which registry values need to be edited to change the tooltips to match. Anyone help would be appreciated.

    Example: I replaced the Documents link with a Recycle Bin one, but it still has the old tooltip. I'm not allowed to post links here yet, but here's a screenshot to help explain what I'm talking about.

    I guess you are referring to this post on Replace the Music & Pictures Folders in Start Menu. I have no idea about those registry keys - maybe some one here has ... ???

    On a related note, in case you want to change tour start button tool tip, have a look at Start Button ToolTip Text Changer.
