How to Enable ‘Minimise on Click’ for Unity Launcher

Minimize an application window by single clicking on its icon on system taskbar or dock app launcher is a common used functionality.

By default, the minimise function isn’t enabled in Ubuntu Unity Desktop. So you cannot click on an app launcher icon to open an app and again click on it to minimise the app.

Some tutorial shows some lengthy procedures installing some applications.

But here we are just doing a single terminal command to enable this. To disable the ‘Minimise on Click’, just use another command.

To enable ‘Minimise on Click’

gsettings set org.compiz.unityshell:/org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/unityshell/ launcher-minimize-window true

To disable ‘Minimise on Click’

gsettings set org.compiz.unityshell:/org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/unityshell/ launcher-minimize-window false
