How to disable "Quick Short Notes" in macOS Monterey

How to disable “Quick Notes” in macOS Monterey

Updated: February 13, 2023

One of the innovations introduced on macOS Monterey is the “Quick Notes” feature, which is activated when you hover your cursor over the lower right corner of the desktop. How does it work?

At first, it appears as a small white corner, but when you move the cursor closer to the corner it opens a square block.

When you click on it, the Create New Memo window opens. You can use it to quickly write something down without opening the Notes app.

In theory, this feature can be useful, but those who keep bumping into it by mistake will probably want to turn it off. Fortunately, it is very easy to do.

How to disable “Quick Notes”

  1. Open System Preferences and go to Mission Control.
  2. Select Active Corners here.
  3. Tap Short Note.
  4. In the list that appears, scroll down to the option and click on it.

Done: You will no longer be bothered by this function. If you wish, you can also assign new actions to each of the screen’s four corners here.
