Disabling Picture in Picture

Is there a way to disable the PIP function? I have searched thru the Community QA, but it seems that everyone else is a fan of this feature. I find it annoying.

Whenever I am watching a video and have to pause/skip/close, the small viewing window pops up at the lower right of my screen. Each time, I hover over the video and Close at the X, but I was wondering if there is just a way to permanently disable the feature.

Thank you

Disable it, see if that works.

That flag however could be eliminated from future versions, where you might one day again be stuck with seeing PIP as an option.

Thanks for the link. I could not have found that page without your assistance.

After first trying this, I went to YouTube and started a video, then paused it. Immediately the PIP appeared on the bottom right of my screen. I tried it two more times, and it stopped. Then I went to Dailymotion.com and tried watching a different video, and the PIP stopped.

You have solved this annoying problem for me. Thanks again.
