I just noticed that can only view the top 1/2 of the day/date/time
display that pops up when your mouse hovers over the time in systray.
Is this common?

TIA

Try Kelly's fix at http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm
Scroll down to Line 321, Left column:
"Tool Tips Hidden Behind Taskbar" and apply the linked Registry file:
http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/regs_edits/transoff.reg

See if that helps.

Just so I don't do anything stupid...
I should replace 9e 3e 07 80 with =hex:90,32,07,80 ?
How do I do that? (highlight) Edit > modify?

TIA (again)

You download the transoff.reg file to a folder on your hard drive, then right-click
the file and click Merge on the menu that appears. The purpose of using a reg file
is so that you don't have to open the Registry Editor at all.

You know what the problem was? I wasn't using IE! I was using my
favorite browser instead. Once I switched, everything was as you said
it should be.

thanks

Maybe it was just a sudden computer glitch and that's why I didn't
notice it before I posted - but somehow the problem fixed itself
before I applied "the fix"!

I dunno what the problem was but I applied "the fix" anyway! In any
case - it hasn't hurt anything yet (of course, I haven't rebooted
either).

BTW: It's a pleasant surprise to see you here, Glee!

Only if you want Kelly's preferences.

This tip specifies whether to use a X-Mouse style interface. An X-Mouse interface (in part) means that windows the mouse is over are active. This has been added to Explorer Options on the Explorer page.

The user preference mask is a hexadecimal representation of bit values. To set use Windows Calculator and the values from the table below.

To use Windows Calculator take the value from UserPreferences and AND it with the value from the table below.

a.. Put the value from the table below into Calculator in Hex mode
b.. Press AND
c.. Take the value from from user preferences (in this sample 000000fd as it's byte order reversed).
d.. If it is set it will return the same value as the table below, if it's not set it will return 0
Bit 0 is 2^0 = 1, Bit 2 is 2^1 = 2, Bit 3 is 2^2 = 4, Bit 4 is 2^3 = 8, Bit 5 is 2^4 = 0x10 (16),..., Bit n is 2^(n-1).

Byte order reversed is how numbers are stored as binary.

9e 3e 07 80 = DWord (in hexidecimal) 80 07 3e 9e = 0x80073e9e
90,32,07,80 = 80 07 32 90 = 0x80073290
Bit UI Setting Default Value Meaning
0 Active window tracking 0 Active window tracking disabled.
1 Menu animation 1 Menu animation enabled; menu effect depends on value of bit 9.
2 Combo box animation 1 Slide-open effect for combo boxes enabled.
3 List box smooth scrolling 1 Smooth-scrolling effect for list boxes enabled.
4 Gradient captions 1 Gradient effect for window title bars enabled.
5 Keyboard cues 0 Menu access key letters underlined only when the menu is activated from the keyboard.
6 Active window tracking Z order 0 Windows activated through active window tracking are not brought to the top.
7 Hot tracking 1 Hot tracking enabled.
8 Reserved 0 This bit reserved for future use.
9 Menu fade 1 Menu fade animation enabled. If menu fade animation is disabled, menus use slide animation. This bit is ignored if menu animation (bit 1) is disabled.
10 Selection fade 1 Selection fade enabled; the selected menu will remain on the screen briefly and then fade out after the user makes a selection.
11 Tool tip animation 1 Tool tip animation enabled; effect depends on value of bit 12.
12 Tool tip fade 1 Tool tip fade animation enabled. If tool tip fade animation is disabled, tool tips use slide animation. This bit is ignored if tool tip animation (bit 11) is disabled.
13 Cursor shadow 1 Cursor shadow is enabled. This effect only appears if the system has a color depth of more than 256 colors.
14-30 Reserved 0 These bits reserved for future use.
31 UI effects 1 All UI effects (combo box animation, cursor shadow, gradient captions, hot tracking, list box smooth scrolling, menu animation, menu underlines, selection fade, tool tip animation) are enabled.

That's information overload David! I'm not an expert - the only thing
I want to do is display ALL of my day/date/year pop-up over the clock.

A simple yes or no (with correcting information) will suffice.

See my reply to you in this thread. I think I'll let David and Kelly work out what
her reg file is actually supposed to do. I only know what Kelly purports it to do.

It's a bug in the Z Order. Tooltips are always there and are a On Top window. A tooltip is shown or hidden. When the taskbar is on top and the tooltip is on top sometimes it gets confused. The Show Desktop command is a culprit as it mucks about with windows Z-Order if the window can't be minimised (compare Winkey + M which minimises only and Winkey + D which minimises all windows that can and mucks about with the Z order for programs that can't be minimised).

Thanks for explaining that, David. As usual, you have the "extra mile" of details,
and an understanding of Windows code beyond the "norm". Where/how is the Z-Order
stored, or is it?

It’s very simple!
Don’t change your system unless you really want to try it.

Do this instead..

Right click on your taskbar
Select Properties
Uncheck the "Keep the taskbar on top of other windows" option.
Click Apply

The tooltips will not be stuck behind the taskbar anymore.
