AutoCAD 2018 – disable InfoCenter

Here’s another AutoCAD 2018 download, just in case you haven’t had enough.

If you want to disable AutoCAD’s InfoCenter (and you should, unless have a specific reason for keeping it – here’s why), go get the updated download from uber-expert Owen Wengerd’s ManuSoft Freebies page. It works for AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT.


  1. we have done that for years in the acaddoc.lsp with:
    (vl-registry-write (strcat “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\” (vlax-product-key) “\\InfoCenter”) “InfoCenterOn” 0)

  2. Agree with both James and Steve/Owen — we use the lisp code, but for a lot of people, it’s easier with a small plug-in like Owen provides.

    For the life of me, I do not understand why there isn’t a toggle in the normal user interface to simply turn it off. On the other hand, I am thankful it isn’t rigged to a point where we can’t disable it.

  3. What is a good reason for keeping it?
