libre office take up whole window.


I installed libre office with out any issue.
However whenI open it up I takes up the whole screen.
It does not have a minimize or
resize button - just a x.

I tried hitting f10 and f12 does not work. I have a dual monitor setup
amd need to just have libre office on only one screen

You did not tell which OS and desktop environment you are running.

What have you tried?

You might be able to resize it with pointer.

You could also open up Gnome Control Center and try changing the theme. That might fix the missing button problem.

Try right-clicking title bar 3 options there.
Also open LO go to View & deselect Fullscreen option.
