Fix: Maximize, Minimize, and Close Buttons Missing in Windows

by Karen Jodes technology world

The Windows title bar comes with three options: minimize, maximize, and close. But, sometimes, a glitch may occur, which can prevent these three options from appearing in the title bar. If the maximize, minimize and close buttons are missing from the title bar, then apply the solutions mentioned below:

Restart the Windows Manager

Here are the steps to follow:

1.      Tap the Ctrl + Shift + Esc button on your keyboard to open Task Manager.

2.      In the task manager find “Computer Windows Manager” and right-tap on it.

3.      Then select “End Task.”

Roll Back to Older Driver

Here are the steps to follow:

1.      Tap the Windows + X button on your keyboard to launch the Win + X menu and select “Device Manager” from the list.

2.      Find the display adapter in the Device Manager and then double-tap on its properties.

3.      Select the “Driver” button and then click on the “Roll Back Driver” option.

Always Use Standard Windows Theme

Here are the steps to follow:

1.      Right-tap on your computer screen and select “Personalize.”

2.      Here settings application will appear on your screen, move to the theme option that appears in the left side pane; click any default theme like Windows and Windows 10.

3.      Several users like to customize their devices with custom themes, but many themes may not be completely compatible with Windows 10.

4.      After the above process, Windows will roll back to the default theme, and the issue should be fixed.

Remove Problematic Applications

Several third-party applications can change the look of Windows 10.

To fix this issue, you need to delete any application that permits you to change the functionality and look of the user interface. To ensure problematic applications are removed, you need to use any uninstaller software.

Make Sure You Are Not Using Table Mode

Here are the steps to follow:

1.      Launch the “Action Center” by tapping on its logo in the taskbar; you can also open it by tapping the Windows + A button on your keyboard.

2.      Now find the “Tablet Mode” button and disable it.

Change the Project Mode to Extended

Here are the steps to follow:

1.      Tap the Windows + P button on your keyboard to launch the “Project” panel.

2.      Now a list appears on your screen, select “Extend” from the list and the problem should be fixed.

Make Sure Your Windows Is Up-To-Date

Here are the steps to follow:

1.      Tap the Windows + I button on your keyboard to launch the settings application on your device.

2.      Under the settings tab, select the “Updates and Security” button.

3.      Click on the “Check for updates” option.

4.      If updates are available, then they will automatically download in the background.

Hopefully, by following the solutions mentioned above, you will be able to get back the missing maximize, minimize, and close buttons.
