Minimize and Maximize in GNOME3

A couple of things here:

  • Minimize and Maximize are still available and functional in the right-click menu and as shortcuts. Like always.
  • When using GNOME Shell there’s only a Close button on the window, GNOME3’s default.

In one sentence: GNOME3 changed the default layout of window controls. Default being the important word:

  • Can I revert this?
    Yes
    , if you really want to. You only need to change a key in the configuration system. Just as you have always been able to change GNOME2’s window-controls configuration.

Please give GNOME Shell a try, don’t be afraid of changes. If it’s a bad decision, we’ll notice in time and fix it. It’s not the end of the world. Not yet :)

    You can already do “send to bottom”: just middle-click the titlebar.
