    Unwanted icons for previously opened emails showing up in taskbar


    This is some kind of settings problem that I can’t find. I am getting unwanted icons representing previously opened emails in my task bar when I am using GMail. If I hover mouse over the icon, I get small pictures of every message I’ve opened and can ‘X’- out. How do I get rid of these icons showing up?

    :)
