KDE windows move to right

Hello Garuda users.
Sorry, I don't speak English and use an online translator.
I am new to Garuda KDE and have two questions.
Is it graphically possible to move the window buttons (maximize, minimize and close) to the right of the windows?
Is it possible to change the button at the top right that closes a session to the default option of shutting down the PC?
Thank you very much in advance

Refusing to post the output of the required "garuda-inxi" on a help request will likely result in you not receiving any help from the Garuda team. A failure to provide your system specs may also result in your thread being closed without notice, (as without this information providing assistance is often next to impossible). 

Before opening a new help request, please search the Arch and Garuda Wiki's, and read any relevant sections related to your issue. Also, thoroughly search any error messages in the forum's search engine and on the web. For in depth information on how to search for answers to Linux issues effectively, read the tips on the Garuda Wiki:


Please report in detail everything you have already attempted to solve your problem.

The template above should be deleted before posting your help request.



It's all in the KDE & Garuda settings. Be bold--explore your interface/operating system! :smiley:


Graphical way in 2nd post.
Please use the web/forum search before you open a help request.

Your solution is command line and my request was with a graphical interface like with Gnome.
Thanks for the link, I will try.

If I ask the question, it's because I didn't find it in spite of research............

It's answered here in forum, just search, please.

Hey, we understand that! Reading through a lot of research can bogle the mind. :slight_smile:

What we DO need you to do, regarding your research, is to avoid all of us willing to help from duplicating your efforts and wasting everyone's time. So, simply, tell us what you searched, what you found, what you attempted, and their results.

We're a small forum, staffed by all volunteers. We'd appreciate the help. :slight_smile:

Best Regards


For all those who tell me to search, as stipulated in my request, I was looking for a graphical solution to avoid the command line and I don't see a solution in the forum.

Open KDE system settings and search window decorations. You'll see it is possible there to move the buttons.
This applies to not maximized windows. For maximized windows you'll have to learn how to customize the top panel (right click, enter Edit mode, etc.).
Searching might be a bit more difficult because in the past, for a lot of time, we used latte-dock. So topics mentioning it should be disregarded.
All this can be easily searched also on the internet. This is all pure KDE stuff, not Garuda's.
