How do we disable Tool Tips?


Cayce

Recommended Posts

Should it honestly require fifteen full minutes of hunting, then a trip to a forum, just to find out how to get rid of these tool-tip/help-tags?

 

In Preferences > Display, "Show Help Tags" is unchecked.

 

In Preferences > Control Surfaces > Help Tags, every option is unchecked.

 

Would someone please tell me where Apple has so cleverly disguised or hidden the toggle for disabling these things?

 

Thanks.

you might check out the app tinkertool.https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/5721/tinkertool

 

i think there's a way to disable ALL tooltips, or at least, seriously extend the time it takes for them to appear (i did this with the terminal back in 10.7 or so).

 

there's also macpilot, which may have a similar option...

Thanks fisherking. TinkerTool seems to be a great app. I didn't even know it existed :mrgreen: Have to install it and look at all the hidden preferences :twisted:
