having big tool tips and thumbnails pop up on hover is an accessibility problem, besides being a nuisance.

i'm visually impaired. i make heavy use of screen magnifiers to use computers effectively. every time a pop up i don't want to see pops up, it completely obscures what i actually want to see, because i am zoomed way in.

there are so many of these, in so many different apps, that finding all the settings and changing them is arduous.

i've learned to move my mouse in circuitous ways over the screen to avoid pop ups. like a minefield. i've developed a reflex to shake my mouse back and forth every time a pop up appears to make it go away.

it's bad.
