I am running Mac OS 10.15.2. I rarely reboot my computer, but I had to turn it off to move it home due to Coronavirus, and I when I rebooted I found I had received an unwanted change.
Now, whenever I click a menu item (that is, the menus in the top left corner, for instance at the moment I am in Chrome so I have the items
Chrome File Edit View History Bookmarks People Window Help), it gives little numbers on the left alongside each drop down menu. For instance when I click the
File menu, I get a little
New Tab, a little
New Window, etc.
And, clicking these menus is really slow. Even when I select something which does almost nothing (e.g. I click
File, then change my mind and click
File again to close the drop down menu), the little numbers stay around for about a second, and during that time I cannot do anything else. This ~1 second delay is really annoying, like I am running an overloaded or outdated computer (which I am not). Even worse, Cut + Paste takes several seconds.
I suspect these little numbers are the cause. So now for my question: how do I disable this feature?
