Is this the tool tip you are looking for?

Are they turned off in the Interface tab in Preferences?

Yes, this is what's missing on my friends' LR. He's a pro working in NYC and says several of his colleagues are having the same problem. All of them use Macs. The way he talked I thought it was a well known problem but I, so far, not found another person with the problem. Mine works just fine - but I'm on a PC.

The screenshot I posted above is from Mac OS 10.13.4. I checked two other Macs (same software version) and it was working on both of them.   What is his OS version?

Restart Computer fix it?

No, the box is checked (it's turned on). It's called "Show Image Info Tool Tips" It's in Preferences>Interface. Also if you right click on a thumbnail in the film strip you can find it in "View Options"
