I feel one of the biggest improvements with Chrome on Windows is moving the tabs all the way to the top to the screen (so the mouse can just go all the way up, then click). I went with the kubuntu because they do not include the normal (pointless) Linux menu bar at the top of the screen. It took me an hour to get chrome on here and now I see there is a Giant pointless title bar across the top. It is a good 5% of the total screen area and it is just the title and close buttons. Is there anyway to have the chrome tabs all the way at the top of the screen like was intended by Google?
Open system settings (the
systemsettings app), and go to
WorkSpace Appearance → Window Decorations → Configure Decoration. Switch to the
Window-Specific Overrides tab. There you have to add a new override, press
Add button, you will see a new window with checkboxes. Press
Detect Windows Properties button (your mouse cursor will turn into aim like icon), and click at the Google Chrome window. You will be prompted of whether to use window class, or just title, choose the window class checkbox. Finally, check
Hide window title bar checkbox, press ok.
Note that you can move windows by holding Alt key and clicking them.
For those who also would like to get rid of window buttons (minimize, maximize, close).
Right-click the titlebar of Google Chrome, go to More Actions ⇒ Configure Special Application Settings... ⇒ Appearance & Fixes tab, mark No titlebar and frame, in the following menu select Force and then Yes on the right, click OK to save new settings.
If you need to access the window manager's menu in KDE (like right-clicking the titlebar), you can always use Alt+F3 shortcut.
In the latest build of Chromium, version 94 now, the Menu ⇒ Settings ⇒ Appearance ⇒ Use system title bar and borders option is no longer available there.
What you need to do to access this option is Right Click in any empty space in the Tab Bar and select or deselect the Use system title bar and borders option from the drop down menu, as shown in the screenshots below below.
