Show or Hide Enhanced ScreenTips

By default, Excel shows document tooltips (or screentips) when you hover on a button, but this option can be turned off.

To do this, follow next steps:

    1.    On the File tab, click the Options button:

Excel 2016 options

    2.    In the Excel Options dialog box, on the General tab click the ScreenTip Style drop-down arrow, and choose one of the following settings:

General Excel 2016 options
  • Show Feature Descriptions In ScreenTips to display larger ScreenTips with the tool button name and an explanation of its function.
  • Don't Show Feature Descriptions In ScreenTips to display only the tool button name.
  • Don't Show ScreenTips to display neither enhanced nor standard ScreenTips.

    3.    Click OK.
