If you ‘re new to InDesign, you probably want to learn all the ins and outs of the application as fast as possible. If you’re looking to learn Keyboard Shortcuts to access the tools in your Tool palette, the Tools Tips that pop up when you hover over a tool can be very helpful. But waiting a couple of seconds for the tip to pop up can really slow you down.

If you want faster tips, change the Default Preferences, which are set to delay how fast Tool Tips pop up. Go to the InDesign Application menu (Edit on PC) > Preferences > General, and in the General Options section, change Tool Tips from “Normal” to “Fast” and press OK.
