    Can I turn off the automatic displaying of Music ID Tags
    every time I am in a folder and hover over a Media File,
    such as ,wav, .mp3, .mpg, etc.
    If I can, How is it done?
    It is very annoying and slows up my re-naming process.
    Also, I have my Sound Setting to play a small sound byte
    every time a program opens or closes, which adds to the
    annoyance, while I am listening to music.
    This never happened before, until I upgraded to
    Windows Media Player 9
    Please Help.

    Are you talking about the yellow colored pop-up boxes you
    get when you hover over an icon? If so, go to My
    Computer / Tools / Folder Options / View tab / and turn
    off "Show pop-up description". About the sound events,
    simply choose a sound of "None" for the particular event.

    Hi Eddie, Thanks for your help.
    Yes, you are correct in your advice.
    But, I always had the Show pop-up description box checked
    to view those yellow pop-up descriptions. I do not
    remember any Music Tags opening. Any time I hover over a
    non media icon the pop up window opens, without any
    additional program opening, I know this because of my
    sound properties. Since I installed Windows Media Player 9
    a small program opens to display the detailed information
    provided in those Music Tags. (.wav .mp3 .mpg). All the
    other pop-ups do not cause this problem or open an
    additional program.
    Maybe I will try to install an older version of Windows
    Medial player (WMP 8) to see if WMP 9 is the cause. If
    there's anything else you think might stop the Music Tag
    Pop-ups without shutting off all the pop-ups, let me know.
