When Gmail detects certain types of messages from certain sources (e.g. LinkedIn invitations), it provides shortcuts for actions it finds helpful, right in the inbox.

In some cases, however, these shortcuts are not only NOT helpful, but even annoying, as they are easy to click by accident, which causes the unwanted invitation to be accepted.

Is there a way to configure Gmail not to show these buttons?


You can use Adblock's future called Block element

  • open such email
  • click on Adblock Plus icon
  • select Block element
  • click on that button you want to block to highlight it
  • hit Add

  • Unfortunately, this is not possible, because I'm using Kiwi for Gmail, which does not support ABP. – ohaleck Jan 30 at 15:06
  • @ohaleck that was not mentioned in your question... and also it makes this question off-topic I believe – user0 Jan 30 at 15:28
  • Tho I appreciate your effort, I think that "Is there a way to configure Gmail..." makes the question clear enough to understand, that I'm interested in a solution within Gmail web app, which makes it container-agnostic. – ohaleck Jan 31 at 13:01
