Show or hide enhanced ScreenTips

PowerPoint 2016
By default, PowerPoint shows document tooltips (or ScreenTips) when you hover on a button, but this option can be turned off. ScreenTips can include the command name, a description of its function, and its keyboard shortcut (if it has one).

To do this, follow the next steps:

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

Options in PowerPoint 365

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

General PowerPoint 365 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.
