Balloon on startup
« on: December 18, 2005, 09:17:59 PM »
How do I turn off the startup balloon message that says something like "Hi, look down here, I'm screenshot captor." Kind of obnoxious.

it should only ever appear ONCE.
there is apparently an issue with sc not saving its settings on reboot - try this: just start the program, and then exit it from tray.
you should never see that message again.  if you do, then it's not saving its settings properly and the task will be to figure out why not.

Is there any way to do the same with Clipboard Help and Spell? I hate the way the balloon pops up to tell me it is there on startup. I don't want to disable messages completely though - just the startup message.

Thanks, that worked.
