Disable "mouse over" sidebar expansion
1
Using MS Edge.
Is there an option somewhere to prevent or delay the left side bar from expanding when the mouse travels over it?
I don't need to see the full room name or history when all i want to do is activate it.
Thanks for any help!

Please clarify what "slide out on mouse over" you are seeing in Chat.

Thanks for the reply.
I am disappointed to hear that it isn't currently an option, but happy that I wasn't just overlooking something.

Hey Chat Dev Team... are you listening?  This can be accomplished with a simple check box, and an IF statement.  No thanks needed :)

The reason for having it collapsed is it allows for the window to be resized smaller, while keeping the actual chat text the same size.
I have many apps / windows running on large screens and I find this to be more "efficient"

Ken, I recommend that you open up the Feedback option in the Help section of your Chat user screen, and provide this recommendation directly to the Google team. Google employees do not routinely read comments in these volunteer user-run communities, but they do look at the information sent via Feedback.
