Introduction: How to Change the Text That Appears When You Move Your Mouse Over the Start Button
The title says it all.
Step 1: 1. We Need Resource Hacker
DISCLAIMER! Please, Please, please back up your files before trying this. It involves the registry and explorer.exe I know what i'm doing, but still back up your files first.
Get resource hacker at this site and then install and then go to the next step. If you have resource hacker, go to step 2
Step 2: Explore!
Now that we're in resource hacker, File\open. then go to C:\ (or wherever windows is installed) and go to the WINDOWS directory then open up explorer.exe
Step 3: Change Text
Now go in String Table\34\1033 In the value 533, change the text to whatever you want BUT KEEP THE QUOTES! Use the \n switch to move the text after the \n switch on the next line. DO NOT SAVE THE FILE!
Use the SAVE AS command instead so you have a backup copy of explorer. Name the new copy explorer1.exe
NOTE: SP2 IS NOTORIOUS TO CRASH WHEN YOU DO THIS SO PLEASE BACKUP EVERYTHING ON YOUR HD!
Please see the comment bu smmiller506. I forgot to include an important step!
