SysTips: System Tooltip Utility for Windows 95
Version 0.3, 4/29/95 by Mark Gamber
For Windows 95, build 347 or better
SysTips is a small utility designed to help those new to the Windows 95
interface by providing "tooltips" for system items such as the Close button,
Sizing buttons, System Menu and sizable borders.
To begin using the program, you may either copy SYSTIP.EXE and STIPDLL.DLL
to a common directory (c:\windows, for example) and start it as any other
program, or install it using Control Panel. Start the "Add/Remove Programs"
item and select the "Windows Setup" tab. Select "Have Disk..." and enter the
path to SYSTIP.INF. Select "OK" and the item should be displayed and, after
checking the item and selecting "Install", it should copy and create a folder
and Start Menu entry for the program. If the Control Panel installation is
used, it may be removed by simply unchecking the item in the "Windows Setup"
dialog box tab and selecting "OK".
Upon starting SysTips, a small icon should appear on the taskbar somewhere
close to the clock. The icon, which looks like a pointer with a small window,
may be double-clicked to display a dialog box from where you may close the
program by selecting "Exit". The delay time, the amount of time you must keep
the mouse still over an object, may also be set between 250 and 999 milli-
-seconds. After changing the value, press "OK" to save the changes or press
the "ESC" key or use the Close button to close the dialog box without saving
Note that to prevent tip window collisions, SysTips does not apply itself
to the tray or anything residing within it.
SysTip messages are kept in the registry and may be changed at any time.
