In Office, does anyone know how to make these pop up helper messages go away and never come back? I've tried looking it up myself but it's been tricky because A: I don't know what exactly they are called, and MS has like 3 different flavors of annoying pop-ups/overlays/banners telling you about nonsense and B: most of the results I got were for Office365 Online, which I do not use by default.

Take the version of office and Google registry hacks together. it could possibly be in gpedit as well for policies.

I should point out that this is on a work computer so using gpedit is frowned upon.

Guess those are screentips or tooltips? There are a bunch of options for screentips in office 365. What version are you using?

Office 365 for Enterprise and I have tooltips turned off. But I'm now seeing that ScreenTips are on even though I thought I had turned them off. Since this isn't something that pops up every day, I guess I'll just have to wait and see if I get another pop-up telling me about features I already know. "Click this B to make text bold"
