It is might come across off topic. But, it is somehow related to PCB design. So, I'd like to ask how prevent this information giving gray area to appear and disappear every time I move the mouse on something. It distracts me and covers the areas that I want to investigate more carefully. enter image description here

As shown in the heads-up display (HUD), Shift-H toggles it on/off. If you press the key combination Shift-H it will hide it. You can also access this control by going to the "View" menu, go down to "Board Insight", and uncheck "Toggle Heads-Up Display". Note that you must be focused in the PCB editor for this shortcut or menu navigation to work.
