Tip: Disable XP�s Balloon Tips


If you�re like me and find it annoying when Windows XP pops open alert balloons from the taskbar�s notification area, there is a way to disable this feature.

Open your registry using regedit and go to:

Create a new DWORD value (or modify the value, if it exists) called EnableBalloonTips and set the value to 0. Exit regedit, and restart or log out for the changes to take effect.
