Smart Tags

Guest

I have Windows XP, Word 2002. When I open up a folder I get a list of what
documents are in that folder. A Smart Tag pops up and covers up what I am
looking at, giving me what is basically under details on the tools menu in
this screen. How can I get rid of this Smart Tag (if that is what it is). I
have gone to to the Tools menu, AutoCorrect options and removed the smart
tags, but this one still pops up. Any help would be appreciated to rid myself
of this pest.

Thank you, Jeanne

your internal systems, you'll need to perform the following to remove the
smart tags:

Open the document.
Chose Tools | AutoCorrect Options.
Click on the Smart Tags tab.
Click in the Remove Smart Tags button.
Click Yes in the dialogue box stating that all smart tags will be removed.

This Properties information is controlled by the Folder Options in Windows.
Open any Explorer/My Computer window and choose Tools | Folder Options. On
the View tab, clear the check box for "Show popup description for folder and
desktop items." FWIW, there are some users who rely on these popups and
complain that they don't pop up quickly enough!

Thanks, but I had already done this. Suzanne Barnhill's solution worked
though! Thanks again.
