Absent tool tips in FSX

Recommended Posts

Suddenly have lost all tool tips in FSX. Have tried the full-screen ctrl/shift (if that's the right combo to toggle full screen). And have Display Tool Tips checked with Settings. Using Win 7 BTW. 

Yes, can do just fine without them in my usual aircraft (A2A Comanche) but they come in handy with other aircraft (Alabeo Chieftain, Carenado Cheyenne III etc) as I transition.

Dunno what key I may have tweaked to lose the tips. Any suggestions?

From windowed mode to full screen should be ALT+Enter.

Did you recently update a video driver?

Charlie:Yeah, I knew I'd mention the wrong toggle combo...was away from the computer when I wrote the inquiry. Yes have tried the Alt+Enter with no help.

Frank: Nope. No changes to any drivers. Was working just fine two nights ago and then when opened up last nite, no Tool Tips,. I think must have hit some combination of keys with  my arthritic fingers...at least that's my take, which is probably wrong. Thus the request for some explanation.

Take a look inside the cfg file to see if you can set cockpit tooltips  true/false manually

Could you have accidentally ticked the "Preview Direct X 10 " box in Display Settings?

Reader:

Yes, the "PD Direct x 10" is checked, but unchecking it makes no difference. and I think I need that activated to get the best from the scenery files I have loaded from ORBX. since I am operating with Win 7..

Maddogz:

I'm not sure which *.cfg file you are referring to. As you know, the FSX file has a number of *.cfg files  relating to a whole passel of things. Lemme know which *.cfg I should explore, please.

Appreciate the response, guys.

OK, My bad. 

Just took up the Chieftain and everything worked just fine after setting the PD Direct 10 to unchecked. First tried the stock C 172, OK, then my beloved A2A Comanche, OK, and then the Alabeo and Carenado, aircraft...and everything was back to normal and the ORBX scenery seemed normal.

I dunno, sometimes this strange Internet world seems to have a personality and control mindset of its own that goes beyond this ancient air-mariner's ability to cope.

Sorry to have bothered you, but still respect and appreciate the response. Stay healthy.
