Hide All TitleBar Buttons for Certain Apps

Is it possible to disable the TitleBar buttons on a per-app basis?

I have a few apps where the TitleBar buttons don't really make sense for that app, and also, they overlap directly onto some of the app's own buttons

Yep! On the Settings > Compatibility tab, add a rule with the "Disable TitleBar Buttons (this application)" option enabled.

You can put multiple applications in the same rule by separating their paths with a pipe symbol, like this:

*excel.exe|*notepad.exe|*calc.exe

Hope that helps!

It would be really nice if right clicking on a TitleBar button in a given app provided to option to add that specific app to the "no show" list right then and there. No sifting through the settings and manipulating long piped strings necessary.

Interesting idea! I've put this on our feature request list for future consideration.

Thanks!

I tried what is suggested, although it is not working. The program continues to load with the title bar ?

@Chris: Could you send a screenshot of the Compatibility rule you've created?

Thanks! That looks ok. So the DisplayFusion titlebar buttons are still showing up on that app, even with this rule in place?

I noticed the version number is in the path for the app, maybe it updated to a newer version so the path doesn't match any more.

Could you try changing the path to just
*houdini.exe
?

That will make it match houdini.exe regardless of which directory it is in.

It turns out the application doesn't co-operate when the setting is enabled from within DisplayFusion.

The app still has DF titlebar buttons even though you've disabled them in the Compatibility rule?

No, there are no buttons, no title bar; nothing. I'm trying to hide the title bar in another application; with this other program, same setting turned on within the configuration but the title bar doesn't hide ?

Sorry, to clarify, are you trying to hide the DisplayFusion titlebar buttons, or that actualy titlebar of the window?

I want to hide the actual titlebar of the window.

Ah ok, that compatibility option in DisplayFusion is for hiding the titlebar buttons that DisplayFusion adds to the titlebar, not for removing the titlebar itself.

There is a scripted function you can download that should do what you're looking for though. On the Settings > Functions tab, click Scripted Function > Download Scripted Function, and download the one called "Toggle Borders and Caption From Window." You can set a key combination on it, and then run that on the window to get rid of the titlebar.

Hope that helps!

It doesn't remove the titlebar, rather it just makes the window full screen without removing the titlebar. Also I want to remove the titlebar regardless of the window size.
