How to turn all window decorations off?

Hello,
Coming from LXDE, where turning windows decorations on/off is very easy (via openbox config), I use Xfce now on a laptop and would like to turn all XFCE window decorations off, too (to save some space).

How can I do this?

Thanks!!

Create an empty xfwm4 theme:

mkdir -p $HOME/.themes/empty/xfwm4/
touch $HOME/.themes/empty/xfwm4/themerc

...and select the "empty" theme in Settings Manager > Windows Manager.

If you need to toggle off and on the decorations, bind a script like this to a keyboard shortcut:

#!/bin/bash

REGULAR="Greybird"
EMPTY="empty"

CURRENT=$(xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/theme)

if [ "$CURRENT" == "$REGULAR" ]; then
	xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/theme -s "$EMPTY"
else
	xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/theme -s "$REGULAR"
fi
