In the Cinnamon desktop, if you open
Windows, you can then set the
Right side title bar buttons
There are 6 choices for each button:
- Menu -Shows pull down menu
- Close -Closes and exits the window
- Minimize -Closes the widow, but keeps it open in the panel
- Maximize -Toggles window between full screen and partial screen
- Sticky -?
- Shade -Toggles window between normal & folded showing only title bar
What does Sticky do?
The sticky button icon (configured 4th from left below) toggles.
It looks like this before being clicked
and after being clicked:
Not all buttons appear (are visible) for all
Window borderssettings. However if you set the
Bluebirdyou can see all button icons, e.g. 2 left and 4 right buttons. (In fact,
Bluebirdappears to be the only
Window borderssetting that shows all of the button icons. (However some of the other settings show a custom icon for the Menu button which is nice, and do other things nicely that may also appeal to you. For me I prefer to get all of the buttons. GreenLaguna and BlackMATE also show all of the buttons, but don't show icons, but rather when you hover over them they have different colors, neat, but confusing I think.)
Even if some buttons are invisible (e.g. because the theme is set to something other than Bluebird), they still seem to function when blindly clicked.
I'm running: Cinnamon version 3.2.7, on Debian 9.5
