How can I remove the CTRL and + keypad whenever I am debugging PE file in IDA? All of the disassembled codes are wrapped up whenever I debug a PE file and I see the message CTRL and + keypad to collapse the code. How can I remove that mode so I have all the code collapsed down while debugging in the first place?

  • I'm not sure if i understand the question. But when debugging, you generally need all code expanded, because IDA won't be able to show the current instruction otherwise. – Guntram Blohm supports Monica Sep 8 '15 at 12:02

In the Browser tab of IDA's Options window, check Unhide collapsed items automatically when jumping to them:

IDA Options

From IDA's help file:

If this option is set on, IDA will automatically uncollapse hidden functions if the user decides to jump to them. As soon as the user quits the function by pressing Esc, the function is automatically collapsed again.
