Cannot change size and/or position of Obsidian window

I want to change the size and the position of my Obsidian window, but it is not possible.
Usually it should be possible by one of the following means:

  • double-click on the upper part of the Obsidian-window
  • or using the windows-button and the arrow-buttons

My upper part of the Obsidian window looks like this:

The upper pat of the Obsidian-sandbox-window looks like this:

here you can see on the right end the buttons, “minimize”, “maximize”, “close”, which are not visible in my Obsidian window

Here is my debug-info:
Obsidian version: v1.4.3
Installer version: v1.3.5
Operating system: Windows 10 Pro 10.0.22621
Login status: logged in
Catalyst license: insider
Insider build toggle: on
Live preview: on
Legacy editor: off
Base theme: dark
Community theme: none
Snippets enabled: 0
Restricted mode: on


Disable snippets, use the default theme, restricted mode on. Restart Obsidian.

Post a screen recording of this happening in your vault.

I could solve the problem myself, but maybe I found something else which could be optimized in Obsidian:

I unintentionally pressed f11 under Windows, which activated the full screen mode. In all other apps I get a notification, that I’m in full screen mode now, but in Obsidian I get no notification and the buttons minimize, maximize and close are disabled in full screen mode.

That would be a good thing to post in Feature Requests (if there isn’t already a request for it).

I think this feature request here:

adresses the same issue …
