Hoovering tooltip horror is back from the W1nd0ws 7. Hauting at my Fedora screen

Oooh no. It’s back on my screen from my nightmares on W1nd0ws_7.

The most irretating phenomena EVER-The Hoovering tooltip at your mousepoints tooltip telling you in little box of what your assumed to read with what is allready writen there (WTF! is the idea of that ? ). WHY ?

I never understood the point of the most uneccessary " help tool" build in GUI. at our times.
after my opinion (Excuse me developers)

hovering tooltip screendump all tag

Suddenly it strikes me. From my former marrage with W1nd0ws_7. The most anoying thing which I couldn’t get rid off and reasons why I started dosing up my ADHD medication :exploding_head:.

But I really wonder becourse Fedora is everything you make it up to free choice. So what concerns me is by this “Hoovering Tooltip” over the mousepoint suddenly doing in Fedora 33. How did it sneak in.

Was it an update. Did I type something wrong https://www.w3schools.com/css/css_tooltip.asp while attempting learning shellscripts and bash. But ended somehow up in CSS by a W3schrool. But it wasn’t on purpose and it wasn’t very well wished to sneak this in by accident. WHAT did I type in this time.

So if there is some of your guys I can call for help like Ghosbusters. Who know how I get rid of my Hoovering tooltip Nightmare. Please be so kind and help a haunted computer. :rofl: by showing a script.

You might have to learn thinking out of the box, what is unnecessary for you can be helpful for someone else. Hover-text’s can help someone with problems of visibility. Hover-text on websites show the alternative tag. This can be used to explain something more as just a link does. If it is repeating the same as the link says the alt text is missing.

So might be that this links helps to solve your problem:
[SOLVED] Gnome Shell tool tips / Applications & Desktop Environments / Arch Linux Forums

Please start to write what you want to achieve not just what you annoys. Search engines mostly also give you help in such cases. (Duckduckgo=switch of tooltips in gnome-shell)

Strangely enough, many accessibility features seem to activate by their own without user interaction, either because of the increasing temperatures or because the products are not well developed.
A friend of mine recently had to reset the handy of his daughter since it was no longer usable because of self-activated accessibility features, only to encounter the same problem after a couple of random clicks again.

That’s nobody’s business and I would not post such things on an open forum.


well. I was ironic and tried to be funny. I’m sorry if I offended you or others. I can’t remove it now. :unamused:

Have a nice time :slightly_smiling_face:

I understand that it can be helpfull if you know how to use it right. It just frustrates me that I can’t turn it off as I’m not there yet. Thinking out of the box to be more objective rather than subjective needs more knowledge and understanding for me.

I will have a look at the links and read some more.

Thank you :nerd_face:

Hmmm, i forgot that not everyone sits behind a computer as me, I do have a 25" Display and a normal keyboard. Probably i would also get crazy if just have to work on a Mobile Phone … So I also have to think outside of my 25 inch box :grin:

And I would not quote something like this, because now, if he rethinks it and likes to remove it, it is still in your replay :thinking:
