Not finding the window controls where It used to exist is a very annoying thing. Only the Gnome Applications with actions in the title bar has this issue. Any pointers for debugging welcome.

Although not sure, I kind of believe that issues started after installing Something for Reddit from http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2016/10/reddit-app-something-for-reddit-ubuntu/. Could it be some problem with any dependency that came along with it?

Shell version is 3.24, Ubuntu 17.04

  • @Sina, I cannot add more than 2 links owing to my lack of reputation. That is why I put it that way. Thanks for the concern! :) And I edited the answer to add Shell and OS version and our edits conflicted. If you can edit it once again you're welcome! – Rahul.A.Krishna Oct 2 '17 at 7:02
  • @heynnema, Themes seem to have no effect on this whatsoever. – Rahul.A.Krishna Oct 2 '17 at 7:04
  • @Rahul.A.Krishna When maximized, hold down ALT key, left-click in window, drag window to unhide controls. Otherwise, disable gnome-shell extensions and try again. – heynnema Oct 2 '17 at 7:08
