I have looked everywhere in the Preferences, but I cannot locate that horribly annoying Tour window that covers my work whenever I use Illustrator. Can someone show me how to turn it off (no, it's not the Welcome Screen...)?

Yeah -- its the most annoying workflow killer in my opinion.

Illustrator I think I just had to use it then close it cleanly and it remembered I had already seen their new video pop up tour guide stuff... it stuck for a couple sessions.
...maybe just reboot if your adobe illustrator is leaving the pop ups

In photoshop it is this... (wish they kept it the same in AI)

Hi TMacFarlane,

You can turn off Tool Tips by going to Illustrator Preferences > Uncheck Show Tool Tips:

We ALL need further assistance, Wren.. this is not a Tool Tip issue, it's those ridiculous Tour pop-ups. Seriously, HOW DO YOU STOP THEM???? I'm gonna lose my shit if these can't be defeated somehow; what an unbelievably stupid idea..

This doesn't work Wren. Turning off tool tips does not stop the annoying tour from opening on launch.

This question is marked as "Answered", but turning off "Tool Tips" doesn't get it done. Taking the tour doesn't get it done. Killing production time is what is getting done with these stupid pop-ups!Screen Shot 2018-10-30 at 1.03.43 PM.png
