Window control buttons to the left (SOLVED)
« on: August 06, 2018, 05:48:07 am »
Can I move the window control buttons (minimize, maximize, close) from the right side of window to the left?

Yes.

Open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
xfwm4-settings
On the "Style" tab, under the "Button Layout" heading, drag the buttons to wherever you want them .. this will be reflected in any open application widows.

You're most welcome :)

Can you please remember to mark the topic (SOLVED) .. you can do this by editing the FIRST posting in this topic and changing

Which will help others with the same question find a known working solution
