    Please add an option to disable the pop-up windows that suggest the use one or another Toolbox feature. The incessant interruptions are nothing but spam at this point and it has gotten to the point where I am considering uninstalling Parallels Toolbox--even though some of the features are useful. I am already a paying customer. What is the point of wasting my time with unwanted popups? The pop-ups are as annoying as they are when browsing the web and every browser now blocks pop-ups by default. Parallels Toolbox should do the same.

    Absolutely bizarre that Parallels would think users wouldn't want to turn this off. I paid for your product, now let me use it in peace when I need it and tell it to sit motionless, otherwise, until it's time to do more work. Like Anton.

    Strongly agree with the above. these notifications / recommendations are deeply annoying. I know what all the features of Parallels toolbox do, I don't need these incessant popups asking if I want to use 'X' or 'Y' feature/tool/utility. Bizarre UX design that there isn't a simple option to disable these recommendations.

    We have added an option in Toolbox 4.5 to disable tools recommendations for those users who are aware of Toolbox functionality

    @Alex Patsay Thank you so much! It's great when a company listens to complaints and a fix actually makes its way into a release - I've just downloaded the latest version and was very very happy to be able to tick the "Do not show tools suggestions" box. Your team has made a great product even better.

    Thanks again for this change, and for the update!
