Does the Window Manager box look different from this picture?
If it is different, eg. if your minimise button is in the "hidden" section of Button Layout, instead of in the "active" section,
try clicking on the minimise button and dragging it to the "active" box to make it look like the picture.
Do the same for the maximise button, and if the down button is in the active section, click and drag that back to "hidden" section.
It certainly sounds strange with the reference to Mint 13 mate
Menu>Settings>window Manager - when I clicked on window manager nothing opened. Found a settings manager but that too did
not open when I clicked on Window Manage
That setting GUI 'window manager' will not run if xfwm4 not running! Sound like xfwm4 (Xfce's window manager) knocked out or compiz (?) over riding.
Try in terminal 'xfwm4' if says running try '--replace xfwm4'.
There are no visible [+] or [-] icons only a black cross [x]. So I only have the option to close a file.
Also when online as in this screen, there is only a downward pointing arrow which when I right
click on it, an offer to 'customise toolbar' appears or left clicking says 'How to activate Compiz in
Mint 13 Maya MATE.
