How To Enable Minimize On Click (Ubuntu 20.04)

If you are using Ubuntu 20.04, there is a feature that should be enabled by default but isn’t.

It is the ability to click on the right side panel and both open and minimize a program. It doesn’t minimize. Here is how to fix that.

In a terminal copy and paste:

gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock click-action 'minimize'

Hit enter. Done.
