    Hi all.Question: Changing layout of basic window-commands.


    Hi everyone. I have a problem and I'll be thankful to anyone who'll offer a solution, if there's one.
    So: I'm a user of Windows 8.1. Since I'm a Hebrew speaker, most of my programs' upper menu lines are written from right to left. The problem is the three basic window commands (close, enlarge, minimize) are displayed on the left side of the window, and that really disrupts the fluidity operating the system. Is there any way to change it and set
    right-appearing window-commands as default? tried fiddling with preferences myself but couldn't find such an option.

    Thank you again for your time and effort.

    Amit Nagari.

    No, not in Windows - not without a 3rd-party program. Don't know of any off-hand for your problem. It is strange that it interferes with the writing... or is it just your preference?

    Sorry I couldn't be more help
