If you want toclicking on an application’s icon in the task list to open and minimise an app (how thingswork on windows),Ubuntu can feela little alien.

Unity will only open or focus an open app when you click an appicon ― a behaviour which can be off-putting to new users.

Run the following commandin a new Terminal window ( Ctrl + Alt + T ) to enable click to minimize on Ubuntu:

gsettings set org.compiz.unityshell:/org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/unityshell/ launcher-minimize-window true

Don’t like the command line? You can also adjust this settinginUnity Tweak Tool > Unity> Launcher).
