Although Monterey adds convenient new features to your Mac, like copying text from any image, or AirPlay media files from your iOS device to your Mac, its User Tips feature comes across as a distraction. To disable it do the following,
Go to the Apple menu, visible in the upper-left corner of your Desktop screen.
Select the System Preferences entry from the list of options displayed there.
When the System Preferences window opens, click the Notifications & Focus icon as shown in the image above.
Next, under the side panel on the left, scroll down to the Tips heading.
Switch to the right-pane and choose the Notifications tab. Then, simply slide the toggle next to Allow Notifications heading to the Off position.
This will disable the Mac tips for new users completely. Close the System preferences window and exit.
