Show buttons when hiding title bar

Hiding the window's title when the window is maximized also hides the buttons usually placed on the title bar (close/minimize/maximize etc.).
Is there a way of showing those buttons while hiding the title bar ?

Thanks

I'm afraid not, anyone can confirm?

Firefox and Thunderbird both have an option to hide the title bar and incorporate the buttons in their tool bar. But if the title bar hiding is done through the window manager, then maybe the apps don't know about it and stay the same.

The xfce4-windowck-plugin might still work. It's not an official part of Xfce, but your distro might still package it. It puts the window controls on the panel.

Thanks, xfce4-windowck-plugin is an awesome plugin. Unfortunately looks like it is not actively maintained and currently has some issues with xfce4-panel version 4.14: https://github.com/cedl38/xfce4-windowc … is%3Aissue

I use this plugin for a longer time on my current archlinux-pc. No problems so far. Hope this will last.
