    So how does we unmaximize a window if the titlebar is gone when maximized?

    I currently pull the window by the titlebar to unmaximize in GNOME 3.2. This was very discoverable because it’s the opposite action/reaction of dragging a window by it’s titlebar to the top of the screen to maximize.

    You can drag using the menubar.
