Lost close / minimize / maximize buttons

Post by Cirrus-1 » Sun May 10, 2015 4:46 am

Hello,

I somehow lost the close / minimize / maximize / restore buttons, in the upper right corner of the Slimboat main window.

Full screen / F11 is off.

Screenshot:

How can I get the buttons back? Any help is appreciated.

Windows 7
Service Pack 1
OS Bit Width:64

SlimBoat Version: 1.1.54
Application Bit Width: 32
WebKit Version: 2.2.3
Qt Version:4.8.3

Thanks in advance.

This info suggests that I need to switch off hardware acceleration:

However, I'm unable to find this option in Slimboat. Where can I find the hardware acceleration option?

Thanks for your help.

hardware acceleration is not something you can affect with Slimjet it is something you have may have the choice of changing in your graphic settings for the entire computer see the wikihow link below for some help on turning it off

Thanks for your reply.

I supposed that Slimboat was using Blink (the engine behind Chrome), but it's in fact based on Webkit. So any solutions related to Chrome probably won't work anyway.

In the meantime, I've installed Slimjet and now I have close / minimize / maximize buttons again.
