Thread: How do I view balloon tip details in Windows XP?

  1. #1

    Default How do I view balloon tip details in Windows XP?

    I know, XP isn't exactly vintage, but it's been out of support for years. I can't find my answer in a websearch, I only see instructions on how to disable the pop-up.. How do you view the details or history of the Windows XP pop-up balloon tips on the desktop? You know, those pop-ups that say things like "your computer might be at risk" I saw one mention a hardware error when I plugged in a flash drive, The drive has no problems in use, but I want to see what exactly XP's error message is and why it said that.
