While Elementary focuses a lot on UI and is beautiful to use. It is totally mind boggling that they decided to remove the minimize button.

By changing the the value for “gsettings set org.pantheon.desktop.gala.appearance button-layout” you can adjust the button layout to your preference.
The value would be in the format of [leftElements] : [ rightElements ]

So the default Elmentary setting would be:

gsettings set org.pantheon.desktop.gala.appearance button-layout close:maximize

While the Windows Layout would be

gsettings set org.pantheon.desktop.gala.appearance button-layout :minimize,maximize,close

Sadly the official Elementary Apps do not support this setting, so a program like VSCode would have its Icons on the correct side, while the Pantheon-files still has the same button Layout as before. But well it is a good start.
