How to disable Gmail selfies?
Do you mean your GMail avatar? You can hide your own avatar very easily:
Click on the cog (top right corner) and choose Settings
Click on Change Picture and choose No picture
Click Apply changes.
I don't think you can block the display of other people's avatars though.
Thanks for reply. Please note that I do not mean gmail profile picture , but 'selfies'
Thanks for clarifying, so what are you actually wanting to disable? People taking pictures of themselves? Changing the background of GMail?
To disable 'uploaded pic' as background
Click the Cog and Settings. Choose Themes and choose another Theme. That's it!
thanks. It worked
