Is there a way to set the default highlighting level to Syntax instead of Inspection?

I am finding that inspection level highlighting is too slow fr the size of my projects/speed of my work PC (Core i5, 3.25GB) and would like to be able to set the default highlighting level to simply syntax.

Is this possible?

By right-clicking on the bar to the right (with many yellow highlights), choosing "customize highlight level", and "Configure Inspections", you can uncheck every type of files that you don't want the editor to verify, for the whole project, and choose "Disable new inspections by default". 

This solved it for me. Here us the sequence of pictures:

Ditto everyone else.  I'm a paying customer and I want a way to easily move highlighting down to "syntax" level once, that covers every project and every file.  In my case I'm using Rubymine, where of course the same problem exists.

Following up on Anna Morozova's pointer to using scopes to solve this problem:

If I set my highest-priority scope to not show any inspections, is there a way in the UI to turn ON and OFF inspections again for this scope, without having to drill into the Settings/Scopes/blah to accomplish it?

Alright, so I'll have to go ahead and disable all inspections then. 
Why? Because I have so many frikken warnings I couldn't see or use my scrollbar.

Hi Rudolf,

If you not click it, but press and hold, then you can actually use the scrollbar. But it looks like it is not very user friendly, so please report a usability problem about it using the link https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issues/IDEA.

I would love to have this feature.

I am working on legacy code, that is 10 years old, and 80% of the code is highlighted when the level is set to Inspections, making inspections level useless in my case.

PS: the attitude "I will not do it because I know better than you" is wrong, you should listen your customers, especially if they are still asking for a feature after 5 years
