Mouse Over (Hover)

Discussion in 'alt.windows7.general' started by Bill Bradshaw, Feb 21, 2010.

  1. I have searched every where and have been unable to find a solution to
    turning mouse over (hover) off. I do not want something to run because I
    stopped the mouse pointer over it. Running Windows 7 Pro in the classic
    theme. How do I stop this?

    Is this a problem on a laptop?

    Look in the options for your mouse software. It doesn't happen on any of
    the three Win7 machines here, both desktop and laptop.

    In IE, click the query (help) option. type hover in the search box.
    In the make the mouse easier to use is an ease of access center,
    which includes a tick box for running when you hover.
    Sounds as though somehow it is ticked.
    The little messages that pop up when you hover were called
    tooltips when I programmed - I think those can not be turned
    off because they are built in deliberately as part of the form.

  6. I feel pretty dumb. This is a new laptop and it has to do with the way the
    touchpad works. So forget my question.

    I know what you mean. I have disabled the "click" function of the
    touchpads on my last two laptops.

    That's why I asked you if it was a laptop, I had the same problem, called HP
    tech support and after appx 3 hours messing with them and them telling me I
    had to do a destructive restore I figured out the problem. Had to set the
    sensitivity way up to get it to stop doing it and it still does some crazy
    stuff. So, I use a Logitech laptop mouse almost all the time now and really
    like it.
