How to disable the News Popup in Hexagon

- by

Although I had decided to find the news popup on every Hexagon start “charming”, it wasn’t until this week that I got a tip from one of my supporters on how to turn it off. I must admit that it does get in the way for quick fixes. Here’s how to do it:

  • start Hexagon
  • head over to Edit – Preference Editor – Misc
  • disable “Check Hexagon News”
  • enable “Don’t show the same news twice”
  • close Hexagon (important: a crash won’t save your settings)

I already had the news disabled, but the window kept popping up. It wasn’t until Steve suggested that I tick that box. Thanks for the heads up πŸ˜€
