How to get rid of title bar in KDE to maximize screen real estate?

  1. Use you favorite text editor to edit the file

    ~/.kde4/share/config/kwinrc

    In some distributions the .kde4 directory is called .kde (or something else like .kdemod4)

  2. Add the line

    BorderlessMaximizedWindows=true

    under the section [Windows]
    It should look something like this:

    [Windows]
    ActiveMouseScreen=true
    BorderlessMaximizedWindows=true

  3. Launch KRunner (Alt+F2) and run the command

    kwin --replace

    to restart KWin

  4. Go crazy and maximize every window in sight! Remember that you can unmaximize them from the window menu (Alt+F3) or from the task manager in your panel. If quick tiling is enabled (System Settings → Desktop → Screen Edges → Window Management), you can also use Alt+Left mouse button to unmaximize windows by dragging them
