I like potplayer but it started displaying file information on the left hand side that doesn't go away no matter what I press.
Tab is for file information but this one is just there whether I press tab or not.
Pressing tab displays file inormation in colorful texts. This is just plain white frame by frame information.
What key enables/disables this?
Thanks for suggestions.

Try right click on the screen then preferences. It should be in on screen display (maybe called OSD) or something like that. I can't check right now ... the machine I'm writing this in is running linux so the player isn't here.
No that's not it.
The OSD is same as 'Tab' and that brings an entirely separate text on the screen and goes away when 'Tab' is pressed again.
I went through this link to configure potplayer for DTS/AC3 etc... and then it started showing that info.
Did you solve this in the end? I have the exact same issue. I think I may have pressed a key sequence to activate this.
I tried changing from madvr to another render & the screen info went away. So looked at my madvr setting but there is nothing in there to turn on or off

use Ctrl + J
I reset all the settings and it went away.
As soon as I go through that whole setup in the link mentioned above, it comes back.
I'll try again and see if Ctrl+J helps after I setup the potplayer following this link:
MPC-HC & got the same problem, so narrowed it down that it wasn't a potplayer issue. If you look at this post:
& look at "Step Three: Confirmation"
you will see it mentions "Ctrl+J to enter the OSD" so I thought try it again & maybe that switches it back off - well it worked for me
Hopefully it will solve your issue too?
This is dated back 4 years ago, but because no one seemed to freakin solve it here:
1. right click (or F5)
2. Look for preferences
3 OSD info
4. Everything on that first thing, "Time Method" and down, should be the only things checked.
If you are still getting info after that, then google the answer in a different way
And 1 last note -
I really hope you guys aren't actually using these forums any more cause theis place feels like it's been here since 2001.
Did you look at the screenshot in the first post? Is that what you see when the OSD is enabled? And what's the age of the forum got to do with anything?
Edit: It turns out maybe I was partly wrong (hence this edit to remove the evidence I originally said "the Tab key" has replaced Ctrl+J), although in my defence I rarely use Potplayer. My recollection is Ctrl+J was once the shortcut to "display statistics" regardless of the renderer. Obviously the screenshot in the opening post is displaying MadVR's OSD, which is MadVR-speak for "display statistics", and when the penny dropped I remembered MadVR still assigns CTRL+J to that function as does MPC-HC and MPC-BE, so Ctrl+J is the correct answer when using MadVR. I switched to MadVR and tested, and CTRL+J gave me display statistics instead of Potplayer wanting to wander off and connect to a webcam as it did when I was using another renderer. The Potplayer version of "display statistics" seems to be enabled via "the Tab key". Unless there's also a similar option I didn't see.
The Tab key:
Ctrl+J when using MadVR:
