In Windows 2000 and Windows Me, all of this Summary information is displayed in a screen tip. But Windows 2000 or, more correctly, the NTFS file system, carries this one step further and allows you to attach Summary information to any registered file type.

Windows 2000 is able to do this because of an NTFS feature called multiple data streams. Everything that defines an object is passed to the GUI in a data stream.
