I’m just a Sublime Text fan, and not an expert like Benjamin is, so I’m limited in what I can offer you based only on my experience, but my experience this morning was this:
I’m on Windows 10 Pro with the latest updates from Microsoft applied.
I went to
Preferences -> Settings from the pancake icon at the top left of my Sublime Text 4 window.
The screen comes up split into two sides: the left side panel is global settings, the right side panel is user settings
If you search for “title” in the left side panel, you will jump to this setting:
// Adaptive theme only: controls if a custom or default title bar is used
You cannot edit it. I believe this default value is what Benjamin was saying comes up by default and depending on whatever theme you are using, if this value is not overriden by you in your personal user settings, that is what causes the pancake icon to appear with all your menu options in the top left corner of Sublime Text 4.
But my experience was that I moved to the right side panel, and entered what Benjamin told me to enter in my personal user settings:
I added the comma at the end of the line because this became the second line in my personal user settings and I had other settings that followed it.
I then had to go up to the pancake icon and select
File -> Save to save the changes to my personal user settings.
The instant I did that
Save action, it overrode the
true setting from the defaults for that same property and the menu bar instantly appeared for me in Sublime Text 4. I didn’t even have to restart the application for the new user setting to take effect.
If this same sequence of actions does not work for you, you have a different situation than I do and you’re going to need more detailed/involved technical support assistance than what I needed.
Best wishes for a successful resolution,
