How to change colour of the close minimise and hide button?

I've searched for this and couldn't find any help.
The only thing I could find is:

  1. change icons,
  2. change position


I want to change the colour of this but don't see any option to do so

I can't find anything relating to this, only which side it is on and the icons used. Personally I don't like the colours and want to change it but don't see any way to do this. Any help would be appreciated

Win 10 or 11?

what do you mean?

I could say the same thing about your first post.

We don't have psychics in the team and you deleted the template without posting your inxi -Faz here.

I don't know what you mean but you can change the icon from System Setting > Appearance > Icons

You have to go to application style > windows decoration > themes to change themes of those buttons.

And you don't have to repost if your question was not answered in 20 minutes. Please have some patience.


i reposted because my post was unclear and i had to include inxi -Faz as well as the screenshot so it can be understood more easily

this also doesn't change the colour it just completely changes the set of buttons

You can easily edit every post/headline. Open new help topic is not gentlemen like.

You can change the icons, not the color.


You can always edit your posts.

Yeah, you can only change entire buttons themes, not individual colors. But you can get themes that you like. Pling store is well known for huge collection of themes.
