Option to re-enable the system title bar


I just installed the desktop client for Linux v4.4.0-rc1. I see that it disabled the system title bar and window borders. Could we make this optional? I’d like to see a setting somewhere to re-enable the standard window decorations.

this is an issue for me to. Having a big fat toy-like windows 10 title bar is quite mess on non windows systems. What is the purpose of running alternate systems if we end up with the same dumb system interface ?

I use the “window shade” capability for window management, which has been completely lost with this newest implementation in v4.4. I agree with ilveroluca wholeheartedly that this should be an option. I’m also surprised that more people haven’t made the same request.
