I just installed Fedora 27 Workstation Gnome 3.26.2. All the applications have Minimize on right click title bar, and no minimize button. It looks nice.

But Chrome browser is missing the minimize on right click on title bar, and there is no minimize button! How to minimize the Chrome browser?

Is your Fedora 27 Gnome like that, or did I mess up my install?

Updating software and rebooting the system added the missing Minimize and Maximize on right-click title bar. Although I have done that before, so I don't know why it worked this time.

If that doesn't work, Samuel Sieb and Jos answers are good options.

The standard way GNOME works is without the buttons. But you can control the way GNOME behaves by installing gnome-tweak-tool. You will find in this application the possibility to add buttons on your application windows.

The default shortcut is Super+H to minimize (hide) the window.The Super key is the one with the windows logo on it.

There are many more issues while using the Chrome browser. One of the general issues is the error of Err Spdy Protocol. It appears when you are trying to open a new webpage. Last day when I was using the chrome this error appears again and again. Then I visit Fix Err Spdy Protocol Error for the help. I follow all the steps mentioned and now there is no such issue on my system.
