  • Hi Anton,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    Refer to your description and the shared screenshot, it looks like that “hover tips” should stands for Quick Info.

    If you want to disable this tip, please go to Tools-Options-Editor and find the language that you want to disable this tip like C/C++, and click Advanced tab, then you will find the option “Auto Quick Info” under ‘IntelliSense’ and the default value is ‘True’, click the dropdown list and select ‘False’ as the following screenshot and click “Ok” button to save this change, then you will find this tip not disappear again then your mouse cursor on the variable or parameter. For different language, this option maybe under some different tabs or have not this disable feature (like C#), you need to check it per your requirement. If you cannot find this specified option under your language, please navigate to this User Voice and vote it, it can help to attract the attention of the Visual Studio Product Team, and sorry for this inconvenience.

     

    Best regards,

    Indeed.  I couldn't turn it off in Visual Studio 2015, so I
    have voted for that proposal.

  • Hi Anton,

    Thank you for your update, since some languages support disable the auto Quick Info and others not, you can disable them for your current development and for that not support languages, we can only waiting for the response from the Visual Studio Product Team engineers, thank you for your understanding.

    Best regards,
