I know 2 methods:

  1. Using gnome-tweak-tool (Shell >> Arrangement of buttons on the titlebar)
  2. Using dconf

Here are some dconf examples

  • Only the close button on the left side (i prefer this)

    dconf write /org/gnome/shell/overrides/button-layout '"close:"'
  • Minimize, maximize, close on the right side

    dconf write /org/gnome/shell/overrides/button-layout '":minimize,maximize,close"'

Thanx for this information. Whether the buttons go on the right or left side depends on the placement of the colon in the second argument.

You can also use the gsettings utility as described below:


  • gsettings set org.gnome.shell.overrides buttonlayout '":minimize,maximize,close"' which positions all the buttons on the right side, or

  • gsettings set org.gnome.shell.overrides button-layout '"close,maximize,minimize:"' which places all the buttons on the left, or

  • gsettings set org.gnome.shell.overrides button-layout '"close:maximize,minimize"' which places the close button on the left, and the maximize & minimize buttons on the right.

To arrange the buttons the same way on every login, add any of these gsettings syntax to your .bash_profile file:

  • $(which gsettings) set, etc.
