This extension really helps to making my old Thinkpad with 1600x900 resolution screen a pleasure to use. First I set up the taskbar to be on the side of the screen, but I still didn't really have enough vertical space, so I gave Cinnammon Maximus a try and it solved my problem! Note that when enabling the extension I did get a warning that it is not compatible with my version of Cinnammon (3.8 in Linux Mint 19), but it seems to work fine. The entire title bar, including buttons to minimise and close windows are hidden, but if you just remember that alt+f10 toggles maximise, you can get the bar back easily. Great little extension!

Works!! on Linux Mint 19 Tara (Cinnamon) as well by changing the metadata.json as mentioned by @hard13

Just edit ~/.local/share/cinnamon/extensions/cinnamon-maximus@fmete/metadata.json and add line "3.6"

I tried some combinations but just couldn't use this extension to only hide titlebars in one single application (Opera Browser). Can Cinnamon Maximus be used for this purpose?

Ok, I solved by using Devil's Pie 2 . As found in a comment on a Opera Blog old entry: ----- use a windows matching utility like Devil's Pie 2 to strip the titlebar. Install devilspie2 and create a file called ~/.config/devilspie2/opera.lua containing the following: if (get_window_class()=="Opera") then undecorate_window(); end ----- It works.

Where did u get the window-control buttons plugin, I can't find it ?

Perfect! i think this should be an option in core preferences. Thank you!

@Aprianto Nursetiawan: Use applet(s) like @Peter Engeldinger: Works fine with me on Linux Mint 18.2, Cinnamon 3.4.6 :)

184 no longer exists (I posted a github link), but works fine for me on 18.2 as well.

The title bar is gone indeed but so does the window control.. How to get the window control in top panel just like in the screenshot?
