How do you stop document tab pop-ups?

When I move my cursor over a document tab that is too short to show the whole filename, a pop-up appears with the full filename.  The pop-up covers most of the tab, making it harder to click on it.  I'd like to turn off this feature.  I don't see anything in Preferences to do that.  Is it possible?

    Think this is an OS function.  So look in the OS help file to get a clue as to where change.

     

    Think it is called a balloon.

    Think this is how to disable info baloons.

     

    Open Windows Explorer>Tools>Folder Options>View tab

    Under Advanced Settings, scroll down to the last item "Show Pop-up

    description......." and uncheck it.  Click Apply and OK.

    In photoshop you probably need to turn off tool tips by going the photoshop preferences under Interface and uncheck Show Tool Tips.
