How would I go about removing this icon from the title bar of my Terminal window?

It really messes up themes when I use them.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


To remove the icon, either

  • Turn on the Application menu in Gnome Tweak. This shows the application menu in the Gnome topbar (icon + name) instead of in the application window (icon only).
  • Edit the key org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout 'appmenu:close' to remove appmenu:. This way, an appmenu icon will never be shown, even if you turn the application menu in the Gnome topbar off.

If instead, in response to the comments, you would decide to keep the icon and restore its appearance to normal, then try the solutions that was mentioned in the comments: Terminal icon in window titlebar is stretched out over window control buttons
