              "image": "/Windows/cn_windows_10_business_editions_version_1909_updated_march_2020_x64_dvd_0f04bc03.iso",

Key Type Description
left STRING The X position of the tip
top STRING The Y position of the tip
color STRING The color of the tip. You can use blue/red/green ... or RGB format like #0000ff
image STRING The full path of the image file. This option supports fuzzy matching, please refer About Path Matching
dir STRING The full path of the directory.

So please don't set a too long tip message or it will be out of the screen width.
