Visual Studio Code (Python) vs Thonny

I’m following a couple of Python courses and using/testing 2 Python Editors

-Visual Studio Code

I find Visual Studio Code somewhat confusing (at every keyword it provides a help splash window) … is there a way to switch this off … I find this enoying.

My current favourite is the Thonny Editor … however the messages, provided when an error occurs, are somewhat vaque/cryptic.

What is the general impression of forum members regarding VS Code vs Thonny …?
