Open up your message app. Then on the top left click the green circle icon to enlarge & fit the screen. When you hover over the top of the window now a header should drop down with Message, files, edit ect…you can find preferences under Messages 🙂

Hey I did this but still every time I open my text messages on my cell phone, a messaging icon opens at the bottom of my computer!
