Permanently Disable Windows 8.1 help tips or just make one go away

Win 8.1 help tips popup if Microsoft thinks you might need them and won’t – yes will not – go away unless you follow the help tips directions, whether you want to invoke that function or not.

Here’s the URL to a Microsoft article to permanently disable all popup Win 8.1 help tips, if they are annoying you or you are on a non-touch display where the tips have very little value.

http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows8_1-windows_install/help-tips-pop-ups-how-can-i-disable-them/044dc900-ef8c-4821-91d2-73e96dbf4387

Additionally, if you just want to make one disappear – and not permanently disable all help tips – follow the help tips instruction (you can do this with touch or a mouse) and then it will go away and that particular tip should not come back anytime soon.  Microsoft should just put an X on it to close these annoying little pieces of stuff… duh.

Hope this helps, Mike
