A week ago while working on Eclipse i started having an annoying problem, where the tool tips were being displayed way too fast prompting me to look into the preference setting. However there was non. Later on i realize it was not confined to Eclipse alone. After having spend a hell lot of time goggling, there was one that was relevant, it was something to do with the mousehovertime entry in the registry key. Here below are the steps to get around the issue
Step 1: Go to Run and enter regedit
This will open the Registry editor
Step 2: Go to the Registry Key “mouse” as in the picture below and look for the entry “mousehovertime” on the right span.
If you see one, click on it and you should get a pop-up as the one below
Change the value to 300 and click ok.
and rename it as MouseHoverTime and change the value in the pop-up as shown earlier
Step 3: Log off and re-login
