Windows 8.1: Disable help tips (orange arrows)

It’s pretty annoying if you have a fresh Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 installation installed on your computer, and you get those orange help tip arrows on the side of your screen and you can’t get rid of them.
Microsoft has enabled the tablet help tips by default, and you simply can’t remove them using your mouse.

To help you with this, you can use one of the following solutions to disable these help tips.

Local computer policy:

right-click the windows button and choose “run” -> gpedit.msc -> go to User configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Edge UI -> Disable help tips -> double click and disable -> restart your computer and enjoy

Registry setting:

Copy the code and paste it into a text file and save it as “disablehelpsticker.reg”, then double-click it to import it into your registry.
After you successfully imported the settings, reboot your computer.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\EdgeUI]
"DisableHelpSticker"=dword:00000001

Enjoy!
