Method descriptions in VS Code

Hopefully this is the easiest answer ever. Using VS Code, every time I type something like "document.getElementById('tagsError')", I get a big box describing what GetElementById is. It is driving me insane. Im ready to kick my cat. How do I get rid of these constant description boxes over everything I type in Php, CSS, Javascript et al?

I am not referring to code completions, just the box that describes what I mouseover. it is known as "parameter info"

Thank you

    Hi @Brad V ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum.

    You can try to change the default settings of editor.hover.enabled from true to false in settings.json file(VS Code has two settings.json files and you can change the settings,json file which is included in workspace, it only affects the current project).

    BTW, since our forum is about Visual Studio, as you know, Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code are two different products of Microsoft, for technical support about Visual Studio Code, you can ask questions on Stack Overflow tagged with visual studio code.

    Best Regards,
    Tianyu
