Show or Hide Info Tips


The VirtualShield desktop application will display helpful tips each time you hover your mouse cursor over the various buttons and controls. If you're new or unfamiliar with the application, these tips will help you learn all of the different functions and utilities available.


This allows you to quickly learn how to use the application, by simply moving your mouse cursor. Info tips will also display detailed information when you navigate through each of the various options in the Settings panel.

You can also choose to disable this option if you would prefer not to see any popup messages.
