Any way to turn off all 'handy' popup tips for all products in one go?

I can't for the life of me figure out how to stop these insanely annoying popup 'tips' every time i select a tool i haven't used in a while. There seems to be a different way to turn these off for each product, turning some options off doesn't always work and its really starting to bug the hell out of me. In illustrator for example I've unchecked the tool tips option in preferences, but I still get these massive intrusive buggers that disrupt my workflow!I 've been using Adobe software for over a decade and i really don't need to be told how to use the crop tool.

Is there a way, hacky or not, to remove all of these at once for all products??

After an update you will see those popups that remind you of new functions.

You will see them once. And when you close them, they're gone until the next update.

If you see them more than once that usually points to issues with your preferences file.

Hi Thom,

Monika is right, once you close them, they should not appear again. If they show up again, then please upvote this issue here: Feature Tours and Tips pop up windows keep showing up even after selecting "Skip Tours" – Adobe Illu... and stay tuned for the updates.

This is the best way of communicating with the Engineering and Product Management teams regarding issues and suggestions so they can be implemented in future releases.

Regards,

Srishti

You only highlight my point here - 'they should not appear again' however clearly they do, as you're pointing me to another topic where other people are having the same issue. Nightmare

Obviously that isn't a solution that you pointed to. The same issue is apparent in Illustrator as well. Please don't link us to articles that are functionally identical to each other; please tell us instead how to disable these unwanted and unasked-for intrusions, or tell us what steps Adobe is taking to fix this bug.
