System Tray Icon Bubbles

Recommended Posts

I find that my nLite version of XP produces an odd result with my system tray icon bubbles. When I hold my mouse over my nVidia logo or Gmail notifier it shows the bubble but behind the taskbar. I find that this only happens with my nLite version. I have tried various remedies, e.g., made sure taskbar was set to be in front of all windows, etc., but I am still having no luck. I know that this is not the end of the world, but it would be nice to see my date or the status of my updates. Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.

Seems to me that this is a bug that's been with Windows for a long time, and has been reported in many forums. I don't think there's ever been a fix posted for this particular annoyance. Someone might come along to correct me on this, but I'm pretty sure you'll have to live with it.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Visu­alEffects\TooltipAnimation]

"SetWindowPos"="HwndInsertAfter, Hwnd_Top"

"SetForegroundWindow"=dword:00000001

Make a registry file out of this. It seems to work for me.

Someone else posted it here awhile ago. :rolleyes:
