Hello all,

my partner's iMac keeps on getting the "install El Capitan now!!1!" popup. There is no "dismiss" option, only "not now" and "restart". Is there a way to dismiss it permanently? He is using software that Cappy is not compatible with.

Go to the App Store and open 'Updates' where you'll see the prompt.

Right-click that banner and click 'Hide Update'.
