How can I configure a double click on titlebar to maximize / restore windows? Making shortcuts for keyboard is easy, but so far I haven't been able to find any answer on how to do the same with mouse clicks (!)

Should be pretty simple and neat, but also highly widespread across the different platforms.

All I could find myself, was some instructions for Emerald Theme Manager, a project dead in '11, and cannot be found through apps.

Thanks in advance, and merry Christmas to y'all! :-)


You may use (GNOME) Tweaks to achieve your goal.

Launch Tweaks and go to the Windows section. Select "Toggle Maximize" for "Double-Click" under Titlebar Actions.

Or simply open Terminal and run

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences action-double-click-titlebar 'toggle-maximize'
