Changing Window Behavior

In GNOME, you can either set your windows to roll-up or to maximize when you double-click the title bar. Follow the steps below to find out how:

  1. From the top panel, select System -> Personal Settings.
  2. Double-click Windows from the Appearance area.
  3. In the middle of the Windows Preferences window, select an action to perform when the title bar is double-clicked.

  4. Click Close.
  5. Close the Personal Settings window.

You may also notice that you can change the key you press to select windows and choose to select windows when the mouse rolls over them. Experiment with these settings as well until you find the way you want your windows to act.
