This used to be an option in

System Settings > Desktop > Hot Corners

I don't see it in Juno. Why was this removed? I love, love, love this feature and it is the first thing I activate on a new install. How can I get it back? Thanks! Loving Juno so far.

  • For the record Hot corners are still there in Juno. Not sure why this user is not seeing it.

gsettings set org.pantheon.desktop.gala.behavior hotcorner-topright 'minimize-current'

To add a minimize current window hot corner in Juno:

Install dconf editor

Run dconf editor and navigate to org > pantheon > desktop > gala > behavior Select the corner you want and click on it Click on custom behavior and select 'minimize-current' You're all set!


Install xdotool using apt.

In the Settings -> Desktop -> Hot corners, pick the hot corner you want. Choose Execute custom command. Put this in as the custom command:

xdotool getactivewindow windowminimize
