This question already has an answer here:

How can i set windows control buttons to be windows style (minimize, maximize, close) via command line?

I've tried:

gsettings set org.pantheon.desktop.gala.appearance button-layout :minimize,maximize,close

and it works for Firefox but it doesn't affect elementary OS apps like Files, Music, etc..

Install tweaker for Loki:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:philip.scott/elementary-tweaks
sudo apt update
sudo apt install elementary-tweaks

Then Appearance - Windows Controls - Layout (Windows, OS X, etc)

  • Note that elementary tweaks has been known in the past to totally trash systems. – Lewis Goddard Sep 11 '16 at 13:22
