The title bar (that above the tabs) is hidden when pantheon-terminal is full-screen.

How can this bar be hidden when not full-screen? Alternatively, I'd be happier if I could make both it and the tab bar half the height that they presently occupy, but this doesn't seem to be an option in dconf.

  • title bar of any application is hidden when in full-screen (F11). that has nothing to do with what you ask

  • I think it would be better to mention the behavior of other terminal emulators that have this option, if any. Also: askubuntu.com/a/277963/47206

  • just like gnome-terminal, pantheon-terminal doesn't have a setting for that, unlike xfce4-terminal (here) or terminator (here). In dconf-editor under org.pantheon.terminal.settings I see nothing on this.

  • I'm almost certain there is not a way do this in pantheon-terminal and there will probably never be a way to do it. It goes against the design principles of elementary. May 6, 2016 at 13:55
