This is a dumb question - I know it is but I spent half an hour last night trying to locate the way to turn off the highlighting of controls when the mouse pointer hovers over them. I turned off the Tool Tips so I no longer get the text but can’t stop the blue highlighting which has re-surfaced after this last update. I have been through every heading in the General, Controls and Assistance Options to no avail. I have searched here, as I’m sure this has been answered before, but obviously, my searches haven’t been phrased in a suitable way.
It’s driving me nuts
Pretty sure you need Legacy mode instead of Lock mode in Options > General > Accessibility > Cockpit Interaction System
if you are on PC there were a mod in flightsim.to … Blue Highlight Removal » Microsoft Flight Simulator I don’t know why he has been deleted :-/ (contact me via mp if you are interested by it)
Thanks folks. Tool Tips etc were all selected to OFF and I was still getting the Highlighting. Baracus hit the head right on the nail! I think the description in the “Cockpit Interaction System” for Lock and Legacy is a wee bit misleading - certainly misled me anyway - or - just maybe, my brain was in neutral every time I looked at it .
