I’ve recently noticed a tiny little button show up in the top right hand corner of Chrome next to the “Close”, “Maximize” and “Minimize” buttons. This button is for Google Chromes newish “Avatar Menu”.
Since I don’t typically like new things.. I immediately went looking for a way to make it go away.
That said, you can use Chrome flags to turn off the avatar menu in Google Chrome.
- Open the Chrome flags by typing “chrome://flags/” into your Omnibar.
- Search through the flags for “Enable the new avatar menu“
- Select the “Disabled” option and save.
- Relaunch the browser.
Kaboosh. The new Avatar menu is gone (for now).
