How to Turn Off Quick Suggestions/Hints in VSCode

Do you find yourself constantly getting messages popping up every time you hit . as you type on VSCode, and you have finally had enough?

Well, let's fix it!

To disable them, add the following to your settings.json in VSCode:

"editor.suggestOnTriggerCharacters": false

suggestOnTriggerCharacters waits for the . character and then shows a hint. Setting it to false turns that behavior off.

Useful for screen recordings where it becomes distracting.
