Removing InfoCenter from AutoCAD 2017

AutoCAD 2017 InfoCenter
If you wish to remove the InfoCenter from the AutoCAD title bar, it is very easy to do.

  1. With AutoCAD closed, run the REGEDIT command (disclaimer: don’t do anything foolish in here, only make the edit as described below!).
  2. Navigate to the following location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\AutoCAD\R21.0\ACAD-0001:409\InfoCenter
    Regedit location to remove InfoCenter
  3. In the right pane, find the value named “InfoCenterOn”.
  4. Double click on it, and change the value of this to 0 (ZERO), then click OK to close this dialog.
    Changing the value to 0
  5. Back in the main Regedit dialog, make sure it looks like this.
    After making the change to the InfoCenter value.
  6. Open AutoCAD and enjoy!
    Enjoy AutoCAD with no InfoCenter!

Note that many earlier versions of AutoCAD and verticals such as Civil 3D can be modified in the same way. The registry key will vary slightly, specifically the “R21.0” part and the “ACAD-0001:409” part. When in doubt, search for the word “InfoCenter”

If you want to use autolisp code to force this setting at startup for many users perhaps, you can use the code below. It will take effect on the next startup after this code is executed.

   (strcat "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\" (vlax-user-product-key) "\\InfoCenter")
