everyone in the elementary Os world, I must say Having come from an Apple background I am liking what I see so far. I am running elementary OS 5.0 Juno 64 bit

Question 1 I notice there is no Minimise / maximise buttons on applications, I have to right click. Can this be overcome? Are there shortcut keyboard strokes for it perhaps??

Question 2 I have a HP desk jet printer 2600 series and I Can NOT get it to work wireless. It connects to my WiFi but in doing so kicks me out

Question 3 My mouse scrolls the wrong way, IE when I scroll the wheel towards me the text goes up,not down. I am unable to find any settings that relate to that

Hope someone can help me out

TIA Ozzyrod


Question 1: The minimise / maximise button is on the right (by default)


If you have elementary tweaks installed you can customize the layout style.

Question 3: System settings -> Mouse & Touchpad -> Mouse -> Natural scrolling

I am afraid I can not help you with question 2.

  • Thanks for your answers. I do understand that the min/max is on right. My issue is that you have to right click to access it. On other systems I have had there is a squatre block and an underline. They are used to maximise and minimise. No big deal, I just wondered if that was available with some tweaking – Ozzyrod Jun 18 '19 at 23:47
  • in relation to elementary tweaks I used terminal and cant find? So I take it that means it is not in repository? Do I download from web? – Ozzyrod Jun 18 '19 at 23:48
  • Q2. I have installed a universal printer to usb cable and will just stick with that I think. Save a lot of time. – Ozzyrod Jun 18 '19 at 23:49

In relation to the minimize/maximize it is the double arrow icon on the right top.

What I think you want is for the window to minimize all the way to the the dock not just resize to a smaller window. For that you do have to either right click or click on the apps icon in the dock.


To install elementary tweaks follow the following sudo apt-get install software-properties-common sudo add-apt-repository ppa:philip.scott/elementary-tweaks && sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install elementary-tweaks

Tweaks will be installed into the system setting folder
