The Gmail user interface contains the following three top links above the "Compose Mail" button:

  • Mail
  • Contacts
  • Tasks

gmail section above compose button

I'm always on the Mail tab. I'm not using Tasks and I never go to the Contacts tab.

Is it possible to make the links disappear?

I doubt it, since they are not considered labels. However, they are collapsable. enter image description here enter image description here

There is also a script that moves those links below the labels.

Script Summary: Move gmail's top-left menu (Mail, Contacts, Tasks) under list of folders. Works in Firefox (with Greasemonkey), Chrome and Opera.
