Hi all,
When I use xfwm4, I use a a lot the keyboard. Really a lot. In fact, I use my mouse only to resize or move windows. So, for a maximized windows, I don't need window borders nor title bar ("menus" ?). I did a quick & dirty patch (2 lines) to hide window decorations when a window is maximized. Now I give it to you as "proof of concept".
Any chance yo have this feature "out of the box" in the future ?

Reproducible: Always

Why not using fullscreen (alt+f11 by default) and get teh same result - You can still cycle between windows with alt+tab
Comment 3 Simon Lipp 2008-04-19 19:08:44 CEST
I don't want to hide the panel, and fullscreen hides the panel
Comment 4 M. Molle 2013-12-05 03:00:51 CET
on all my netbooks, i use openbox instead of xfwm for just one reason: there ist alt-space alt-d, which is: hide-decorations. shoudn't be too hard to implement, because it's omitting stuff...

If you got a patch, PLEASE consider it.

keep up the good work on the one and only usable DE out there left...
