Is there a way to adjust the how long it stays on the screen. I've looked all through the control panel, view, and internet options to no avail.

Roger, are you talking about tooltips?

The yellow boxes that pop up when you hover over a link etc.

Yeah, that's it. Where are the settings for tooltips in Windows XP?

I think that the only option you have is on or off.

generally controlled by how long the pointer hovers over the link.
