How to remove the MDN hover reference on VSC

Since I got a new job as a front-end developer at a big company called Consid S5, I have learned so many new things and want to share them with you.

At work, we use Visual Studio Code for our projects and one thing that I found kind of annoying was the Mozilla MDN references that appeared on the code as I was hovering, for instance, over the css classes in the code.

Now you may wonder, did you JUST NOW start to use Visual Studio Code? The answer is yes. I have never worked with Git before, so my coding world was either Dreamweaver, Notepad++ or just WordPress Customizer 😀

Anyway, moving on.

That hover was not intentional, instead, think of it as me moving from line code to line code using the mouse. And then Pop! Suddenly a reference pop-up appeared. Very annoying!

If you use VSC, you know.

So, if you want to get rid of the MDV hover reference on VSC, do as follows:

Go to File – Preferences. A new window with some options and a search field will appear. Type MDN and enter and unclick all the things you don’t need.
That’s all.

Enjoy your pop-up free coding 🙂
