View Full Version : USB Message Bubbles

Not a biggie, just a tad annoying!

I have two computers I "look after" in terms of backing up data to an external USB HDD. On the Home computer, when I plug the drive in, I get the message bubble that says it's connected, and when I remove the device, I get a message bubble telling me it's safe to do unplug it.

On the Work computer, however, I get no message bubbles. Period. And damned if I can find where to turn it on! I've checked in the Device Manager, and the option to suppress error messages is not checked, so it must be a setting somewhere else.

Home computer is running XP Home SP2, work computer is XP Pro SP2.

I'm pretty sure its a registry setting.

And unless its your computer at work, and you have admin access, you wont be able to change it

An example is here (http://www.theeldergeek.com/notification_area_balloon_tips.htm)

Tweakui will also stop or start the message balloons.
