Disable Pointers


When new features are introduced into WordPress, various helpful pointers (tooltips) maybe shown to users on the admin screens. This simple plugin disables them for all users. No options, no configuration, just install and activate.


  1. Search for ‘disable pointers’ from the ‘Add new plugin’ page in your WordPress website.
  2. Click ‘Install Now’.
  3. Activate the plugin.


Is that all there is?
