VS Code: How to Disable/Enable Suggestions on Hover

Last updated on August 25, 2021 A Goodman Loading... One comment

This short guide shows you how to turn OFF (and ON as needed) the suggestion popup that automatically shows up when you mouse over your code in Visual Studio Code.

1. Go to:

  • Code > Preferences > Settings if you’re on a Mac (hotkeys: Command + ,)
  • File > Preferences > Settings if you’re using Windows (hotkeys: Ctrl + ,)

2. Type “editor.hover.enable” into the search field then check/uncheck the checkbox associated with “Controls whether the hover is shown.” to enable/disable the suggestion tooltip on hover.

A quick demo:

Every change will be automatically saved and immediately applied. If something goes wrong, you can reload or restart your VS Code.

That’s it. Happy coding.
