So I tested elementary OS I don't like it so I removed it I switch back to gnome but left me with elementary os style windows control. which has close in left and maximize in right.

I decided to run this command

gsettings set  org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout 'close,minimize,maximize:'

Now it ruins everything. So, I probably just explain it in screenshots:

  • What's the current output of gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout? – pomsky Aug 19 '17 at 13:13
  • @pomsky ':minimize,maximize,close' – Barack Obama Aug 19 '17 at 13:39
  • I reckon the issue is with the Arc-Darker GTK+ theme you're using. Try changing it to a default theme (like Adwaita). – pomsky Aug 19 '17 at 13:41
  • @pomsky it works ! yeah ! not what I expected having to change it to the previous themes. But not so Annoying anymore, I love you. – Barack Obama Aug 20 '17 at 9:03

Open Terminal and run

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout close:maximize
