[SOLVED]My Nautilus does not has window borders!!

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

Hi,
I have installed ArchLinux for the first time. I have installed GNOME (GNOME Shell + Mutter + Metacity + Nautilus + ETC...)
I noticed that among all installed applications Nautilus is the only application that does not have Window Borders (Decorations) and if I wanted to close it I have to press SUPER key in my keyboard then in the activity (dashboard) I click that X appearing to it.
Is there a way to solve this problem?
Thank you,
Mohammad

As far as i know you can define the size of the titlebar in the theme. The default theme can be found in /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/metacity-1/metacity-theme-3.xml.
Back when i used gnome shell, i edited the theme for not to show the titlebar, which is the complete opposite of what you try to do. But maybe you can find a way to edit the file so that the statusbar is always shown.
This part of the file is relevant for the maximised titlebars:
<frame_geometry name="max" has_title="false" title_scale="medium" parent="normal" rounded_top_left="false" rounded_top_right="false">
<distance name="left_width" value="0" />
<distance name="right_width" value="0" />
<distance name="left_titlebar_edge" value="0"/>
<distance name="right_titlebar_edge" value="0"/>
<distance name="title_vertical_pad" value="0"/>
<border name="title_border" left="0" right="0" top="0" bottom="0"/>
<border name="button_border" left="0" right="0" top="0" bottom="0"/>
<distance name="bottom_height" value="0" />
</frame_geometry>

(Still the opposite of your intention, but maybe helpful)
