    Default Disable balloon tips in Windows 7 / 8

    Sometimes the system notifications or balloon tips displayed by Windows or other software starts annoying. So I have a solution for this, to prevent balloon tips from being displayed in the notification area of the Windows taskbar.



    Follow these simple steps:

    • Click Start, type regedit, and then hit ENTER.
    • Navigate to following subkey: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\Advanced
    • Right-click on the right side pane, create a new DWORD value, and then name it as EnableBalloonTips.
    • Double-click EnableBalloonTips, and set its value to 0.
    • Close the Registry Editor.
    • Log off Windows, and then logon back, no more ballon tips.

    I agree Such tutorials are great ways of learning things. And I know of many who love to tinker with the registry, rather than use the easy way out by using a tweaker.
