    how to disable this?

    So when I select an icon in win 7 a small rectangular opens up giving me some information about it which is a pain...

    Is there anyway that I disable it? I can easily find out about this info by getting the properties for that icon so I don't need this painful rectangular..

    Please look at the attachment to figure out what I'm talking about...

    Thanks

    Haha... nice find. A bit easier than a registry edit.
