Change hover taskbar text?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to figure out how to change the hover taskbar text in Windows 10 (see image below) but I can't figure out with parameter needs to be set. Does anyone here know what I need to do?

that frame is called "tooltip", and the text inside is referred to as "tooltip text".

to set the default tooltip text for your compiled script, add this line to your script:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Description=required text goes here

in SciTE, click Help > SciTE Help from the menu, then browse down to Extra Utilities \ AutoIt3Wrapper \ Directives Available to see what other possibilities are at your disposal.

to set the tooltip text at run time, use the function:

TraySetToolTip()

finally, as far as i recall, to clear the tooltip text so the entire tooltip simply does not appear when hovering over the icon, you can use this (undocumented) method:

TraySetToolTip(Chr(0))

Hmm, I guess Windows must of been caching the previous tray title in explorer then, because I already had that set xD

Thanks anyway, It's working fine now. :)
