In this tip ill show you how to reduce the title bar height in Gnome3. Gnome shipped with incredibly high vertically padded title bars which waste a lot of screen real estate. We can reduce the hight using a small bit of CSS code.
We don't need any special permissions to create this css file. We will do this with your local user account.
Example A before CSS
Example B before CSS
OK launch your favourite terminal. Then Type:
This will open a blank css file.
Now add this CSS Code to the blank file.
You can download a pre-made CSS file Here and place it in ~/.config/
Now we need to restart Gnome Shell. Press and hold the Alt key and tap F2 then type r and hit enter.
As you can see we have reduced the size of the titlebar and removed that horrible Separating line.
