What is Tooltips?

​Move your mouse over the UNDERLINE wordings below to see demo

The tooltip or infotip or a hint is a common graphics user interface element. It is used in conjunction with a cursor, usually a pointer.

The user hovers the pointer over an item, without clicking it, and a tooltip may appear—a small "hover box" with information about the item being hovered over.

Tooltips do not appear on mobile operating systems, because there is no cursor.
