New puter

Postby mickh on Sun Nov 09, 2014 7:48 pm

Just bought a new Acer puter and every time you open a new window a message comes up on the right side of the screen telling you how to switch between applications. Anybody know how to get rid of it, have tried all sorts of things but to no avail. :twisted:

is it windows 8? it's called a help tip

To permanently disable help tips you can do this via editing the registry however if your not comfortable doing this you can download a file from somewhere, i'll have a look for it.

Update found file on here: http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/31 ... 8-1-a.html

Or follow these instructions if you can as i've not used that file before so can't say if it's safe or not http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/disable-wi ... help-tips/

You can control other notifications by doing

1, pressing windows key and L together
2, Click on 'change pc settings'
3, click notifications and change the ones you want there

How to get rid of it? Aye, jst drop it round here. I'll send the address :thumbup:
This posting may have been helpfull, on the other hand probably not... Either way, I may have had drink when posting it in which case it's probably not as helpfull as it could have been

Work safe, and remember all technical problems can be resolved with a hammer, the trick is knowing where to hit it and how big a hammer to use (I often find it may also help to have a spare bit in the shed to replace the bit you have just mullered ;) )

Work in Progress (or not as the case may be) I give you.... 'O-no' the truck.
