Remove title bar menu



how do I remove the dot in the titlebar to access the title bar menu?
It wasn't there on Ubuntu 16.04 and now is present on Ubuntu 18.04.

I find it pretty redundant, because you can access the menu by clicking the title bar with a right click.



The dot can also display as an icon according to the theme used. To remove that "dot", use Applications, System Tools, open dconf Editor and select org>mate>marco>general>button-layout. There, if you delete "menu" from the string, leaving everything following, the dot should disappear.


Thank you very much @mdooley
I have never discovered the dconf-Tool before.
