Tool tips do no longer appear when I hold the mouse pointer over interface items such as tools in the toolbar and options in the Control panel.
So I have tried with a new installation and updating, leaving the default settings including the preferences unchanged – to no avail
(In my Photoshop CS6, however, tooltips work fine).
The system runs on Windows 7. Thanks in advance for any help.
First, did you check your prefs to see what was set for tool tip speed? Second, unless you specifically told the uninstaller to remove the prefs, the old ones were preserved when you reinstalled. To reset them, see Replace Your Preferences
Dear Peter Spier,
what I have been doing now
Yes, it did work!!!
And, finally, loads of thanks to my mentor Peter Spier
