    Using Windows XP.
    When one hovers over a link a box with information about that link shows up for 5 seconds or so. I would like to know how to keep that info box open for longer period of time.
    We are using a program that when you hover over a little flag gives us information that we need to get. However the 5 seconds given is too little time.
    Thanks

    You can try this regedit from kellys-korner.
    Scroll to line #7, Increase Balloon Tip Display Time.
    Instructions to run regedits at top of web page.
