The Color panel pops up when you click on stroke/fill selector
The Color panel pops up every time you click on the stroke or fill selectors. There is no way to disable this panel from popping up, even if you close it, it will open and come to the forefront. Many of us don't need or use the color panel; we use the swatches or other panel. Why is this panel being forced on those of us who don't use/want it?

Just want to add to the urgency to fix this nonsense by suggesting that beyond "annoying" (which it is!) this problem is COSTLY. Those seconds add up to hours, and suck productivity away from professional designers' days.
Perhaps with a little metrics, there's a case for a CLASS ACTION SUIT to recoup those losses.

We now have Illustrator 2021 and still this terribly annoying bug remains and hasn't even been looked at by Adobe. It's clear that no one at Adobe actually uses their own software, because if they did, they'd also be pulling their hair out due to this stupid bug that makes the unwanted color panel pop up all the time.

agreed this needs to be fixed!!
I was on the hunt for a solution to this annoying behaviour, when I stumbled of this thread.
Even deselecting 'Auto-show Hidden Panel' doesn't work. I deselect it, next time I start AI it's selected again. It also keeps popping up regardless of the option selected or deselected.
PLEASE fix this, it's driving me absolutely insane! :(
It is **** annoying in deed. Adobe, pls fix it. The solution I implemented is, just parked the **** color panel in the bottom right corner and set it minimized, so it just do its buggy thing as least disturbing as possible and I soon got used to it being opening automatically as a thin bar on the bottom right, if you cant beat it, learn to live with it.
I found this page searching for a fix for this because it is so annoying to me. If they could fix that THAT'D BE GREAT
Thak you Alex!!!

Right click the color panel and deselect "auto-show hidden panels." Worked for me..."
Please find a way to fix this issue. The color palette pop-up is more annoying than helpful. Users should have the ability to choose the layout of their workspace.
Hey so, I've been trying to find an answer to this problem, but nothing. So I will comment to help being heard. Adobe needs to fix this thing up because IT'S TERRIBLY ANNOYIIIING!! PLEEEEASE
When I click on the stroke selector, I would like the swatches panel to open, specifically the custom swatches I have created as a set which are persistent.
I don't want the colour picking panel to pop up, ever.
The colour picking panel could offer a change in setting: "Toggle: open swatch panel instead, when picking colours"
It would then be easy to switch it back and forth if it was required, right within the panel that had just opened, which seems intuitive.
Thiiissssss - it's SO annoying.
This popup is sooooo annoying...

Exactly! I'm developing a really hatred for this color panel. I am visually impaired and keep my computer and programs settings so everything is very large. This often really lessens my work space. But i deal, because otherwise i can't see comfortably.
So this **** extra panel that I cannot stop from popping up takes up a HUGE chunk of my screen and seriously hinders my work. As a half blind professional illustrator, please, please fix this.

Alex, that does not work. The color panel still pops up as described in this post.

I was experiencing what I believe to be the same issue. Every time I would click on the stroke/fill selector to toggle between them... the color selector would pop up right in my face. I run two monitors and had the color selector and a few other panels on my second monitor to make room for the art board. I moved the color selector panel back into the primary monitor (same as primary Illustrator toolbars) and now I can toggle between stroke and fill without anything popping up. Hope this helps!
Has this been fixed?? Is there a way to make it stop? SOO annoying and slowing me down.

This "feature" is so annoying. If I want this to be a part of my workspace, please let me choose it like I do with the other panels/palettes. It usually pops up exactly over what I need to be looking at.
When you click on the color picker on the left, the Color Window forces itself open on the right, displacing windows you're actually using.
There needs to be a way to prevent windows from opening, because this and other window pop-ups are seriously inhibiting my workflow. Every 5-10 minutes, I have to go over and clear 1-3 pointless windows just so that I can see the windows I need. FIX THIS, PLEASE.
