Disabling Tool Tips in Premiere Pro

Tool tips are small pop-up windows that appear when you hover over an icon or button in a software program. They provide a description of the icon or button’s function. In Premiere Pro, tool tips can be helpful for learning the program and for quickly reminding yourself of what a particular icon or button does.

However, some users may find tool tips to be annoying, especially if they are constantly appearing when you are trying to work. If you are one of those users, you can disable tool tips in Premiere Pro.

Here are the steps on how to disable tool tips in Premiere Pro:

  1. Open Preferences: Go to Premiere Pro > Preferences.
  2. Navigate to General Settings: In the Preferences window, select General from the list on the left.
  3. Disable Tool Tips: Under the User Interface section, uncheck the box next to Enable Tool Tips.
  4. Close Preferences:** Click OK to close the Preferences window.

Tool tips will now be disabled in Premiere Pro, and you will no longer see them when you hover over icons and buttons.


If you are not seeing tool tips in Premiere Pro, even after you have disabled them, try the following:

  • Restart Premiere Pro: Close Premiere Pro and then reopen it.
  • Reset Preferences: Reset Premiere Pro’s preferences to their default values. To do this, go to Premiere Pro > Preferences > General and click the Reset Preferences to Default button.
  • Update Premiere Pro: Make sure you are running the latest version of Premiere Pro.
