XMP file thumbnails in Bridge

Since updating to Bridge 2024 every time I label or rate an image thumbnail in Bridge a XMP thumbnail is created beside the image thumbnail. I have never experienced this and it is a major distraction clogging up

my film strips. How do I turn off seeing the metadata thumbnails?

I'm guessing you are working with RAW files. When you add metadata to a RAW file, an XMP sidecar file with the same name is created to store the metadata.

Check to see if View > Show Hidden Files is selected. Turn it off and you should not see the XMP sidecar files.
