Posted by Britt Duncan - January 13, 2015


Windows pop-up description allows you to have basic information about items inside a folder, like type and date modified. But if you find it a bit annoying and totally unnecessary, you can prevent it from popping up easily. Here is how.

Once the Folder Options opens up, move to View tab and scroll down the list. There will be an option for you to disable pop-up description as it is displayed as Show pop-up description for folder and desktop items. All you need to do is to tick off the check-box before it and hit OK.
