Yahoo's link preview feature shows a popup preview when ever you insert a new link while composing email. It gives you an idea of the actual content of an inserted link before sending the email. The preview can be in two sizes - full or compact. 

Although the feature would look useful for some, but would be equally annoying for others - especially if the number of emails you send with links are more. So let's see how this feature can be disabled.

Disable Automatic Link Preview in Yaoo Mail.

  1. Open Yahoo mail, clik on the gear icon on top right and select "settings".
  2. In the Settings window, select "Writing Email" tab on the left.
    disable link preview in yahoo email
  3. Uncheck the "Automatically generate a preview of links" option.

That's it. Now Yahoo won't show the annoying popup when ever you paste a link while composing email.
