How to Personalize Your Theme on Linux Mint

To manage these settings in Linux Mint, you need to press the Super key, then type “Themes,” and hit enter.

Tip: The Super key is the name that many Linux distributions give to the Windows or the Apple “Command” key to avoid any trademark issues.

Press the Super key, type “Themes,” and hit enter.

In the “Themes” tab, there are five sections that can be individually customized. The top option, “Window borders,” allows you to configure the appearance of the top-bar of windows.
