Disable popup help allows you to Disable or Enable the Popup help feature. We recommend that you leave Popup help enabled while you are learning the system as the popups will show you details about the feature your mouse is hovering over, if you have not moved it for a few seconds. It is both context and motion sensitive. If you stop moving your mouse and seem to be hovering over any field or menu item, you will receive a popup window with information about what your mouse is poised over. When you become more familiar with the system, you can disable popup help in your Operator Setup screen by checking the "Disable popup help" switch in Operator Setup screen located along the menu path of \System\ Rights\Operator. Select your Operator ID and enter the Detail Tab to find the switch to completely disable the Popup Help feature.
