How to disable pop up descriptions


When the cursor rests on the start button, a tiny message pops up that says "click here to begin". There are lots of these little messages popping up all over. Is there a way to eliminate these messages or better yet, give a longer space of time before they pop up? (I admit that once in awhile they might be useful)

I browsed through some of your previous questions and got through about 15 of them but then got an error message that wouldn't let me go further.

Thank you.
