Somehow, I was able to change the tooltip color. I either used a program or did it some other way (wow - it's scary how my kiddo just sucks the memory right out of me!). I'd like to change it back to what it was (yellow - I believe).

Can someone point me in the right direction? And incase I am referring to it incorrectly - it's the little pop-up when you hover over a link, an icon, ect., and even the comments box in Excel.

I am using XP Home - SP2 (I changed it under SP1 though).

Thanks so much!

hmm this should do the trick: right click on the desktop --> properties --> appearance --> clicking the dropdown of "item" and scrolling down to tooltip. I am at work using windows 2000. but it should be similar if not the same

Yep, that was it. HUGE duh moment. ::sigh:: That's what I get for doing too many tweaks. :)

Thanks so much, I really appreciate it!

You have a option there also to save the setting so save it and give it your own name.
Now you can go and change everything around but can go back and restore your saved setting all at once for all the changes you did.
