    Which window? The three dots appear on every window. But that doesn’t mean that every window supports each of the three functions. It is possible to be using a window in an app that doesn’t allow you do do any of those three things. And it is possible to disable them in various modes. So which window, in which app, doing what?

      Yes, I still have the three dots , but they are grey, not red yellow and green, and I like my colors back. Thanks.

        I think you mean that the maximizing, minimizing & closing buttons in each window are colored gray instead of green, yellow & red (respectively). Well, it’s easy to change it: Preferences->General->Appearance (choose “Blue”).
        Hope that I helped…

    Just exit full-screen mode and your traffic light dots will reappear. Use the little diagonal arrows in the upper right screen to toggle between full and normal screen mode. That works for me.

      Thank you David. It worked for me too!
