Why won't the help dialog go away

every time i start rhino this window comes up, and I close it. It always comes back. how do I get it to stay gone?

it’s back again … please… why wont it go away image

Does your notifications tab show any issues? Just guessing since that also seems to be popping up because of your screenshots.

oh does that cause the panel to come up!? that might explain it. I frequently switch between using my license on mac and windows, so it seems to pop up every time I say I want to keep using rhino here. It’s a strange way to surface the notifications though since even if I close “help” in that panel, it comes back up with both help and notifications, and notifications is not the one in front. Is there any way to disable notifications from re-opening the panel? I am a rhino panel minimalist.
