PRJ98: ScreenTip Remains On Your Screen in Inactive Window

Article ID: 172908

This article was previously published under Q172908


In an inactive window in Microsoft Project, a ScreenTip will remain visible until you redraw the screen. For example, if the inactive window contains a hyperlink to a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) and you rest the mouse over the hyperlink, the ScreenTip remains on the screen until you update the window.


To work around this problem, refresh the screen by minimizing and then maximizing the Microsoft Project window or by switching to another application and then switching back to Microsoft Project.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the versions of Microsoft Project listed above.
