# Ubuntu – How to “redecorate” windows

lxde

I right clicked the title bar of rhythmbox and "un/Decorate". Now the title bar is gone. I want it back and I can't figure out how. I tried hitting D but nothing happens.

• Strangely, by default, there is no toggle to decorate/undecorate a window.

You need do one of two things. Either define a keybinding to toggle or use the shortcut key to redisplay the window menu.

Lets examine option 1:

To do this, open lxterminal

leafpad ~/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml


Search for the first instance of <keybinding>

<keybind key="W-A-D">

<action name="ToggleDecorations"></action>

</keybind>

Now run openbox --reconfigure to make your changes effective (alternatively, you can logout and login).

You'll be able to toggle the decoration using Meta+Alt+D

The windows key is also another name for Meta

Lets also examine option 2:

Thanks to Glutanimate.

Pressing Alt+Space will display the window submenu where you can redecorate - obviously this doesnt need a keybinding, but its nice to have a toggle option to quickly turn the titlebar on/off
