Remove title bar from windows


I have had some issues with memory recently (though there is something weird going on).
The issues happen while gaming, so I would like to see my memory usage while having another program open. I can just open system monitor, reduce it's size, and flag the "Always on top" option. But now the title bar is half of the window's size. Is it maybe possible to get rid of it somehow? It covers a bit too much from the screen
I found there is program "no title bar", but it seems to only affect maximized windows.

Also, I am using Ubuntu 18.04 on Unity desktop

getting a borderless window requires you access your wm, not the app itself, unless it provides this option.

app borderless -bl and no scroll-bar +sb
Code:
urxvt -bg black -fg orange -geometry 80x25x0x0 -bl +sb  -e top
How to get it to the top-level without a title bar to click on and tell the wm to do so, I do not know.

You might want to research different terminals to see what their capabilities are.

your thread title + distro + desktop in a search engine.
This looks relevant.

So basically if the app doesn't support being borderless, I need to find another one?
Because I kinda like how the GUI of gnome-system-monitor looks (Not terminal, graphical program)

there is another thread in here where this one person did not like the window font color, so He dug, and dug and dug until it found where that was being controlled, then changed it to his liking.
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...06#post5957406

Everything in Linux is customizable, you, or the one that wants to make the change in some aspect of the system just needs to find where and how it is being controlled then manipulate that aspect of it to get it to do what they the user wants it to do (within the limits that it is capable of being manipulated). Because this is an open source system, Not Windows or Apples whatever the got people using software.

Finding a theme that does what you want it to do proves that. Because the creator of that theme did what is necessary to change the properties of the object to do what he wants it to do. The only limitations outside of the theme limits of the properties being manipulated is the "programmers" limited knowledge of how to manipulate the properties of the object in question.

for example if you where to download and compile e16 (enlightenment) then install and run it, everything in here can be borderless by the click of a mouse button because that property is being controlled by the window manager and not the application. hint hint.

In order to do that you should press WIN+I keys together to open the Settings app. Then you go to "Personalization -> Colors" section and set the option "Show color on Start, taskbar, action center, and title bar" (or "Show color on title bar") to On.

Honestly, this is what tiling window managers are good for. i3wm is a good one.

dwm is also a solid option.
