I need to change the direction of Action Buttons (Close,Maximize and Minimize)of Window Manager (Explorer) in Windows 7 from Right side of window to Left of Window Just like in Ubuntu.

Because mostly I use Ubuntu so it became my habit that if I have to close or minimize the window my hand automatically goes to left side of screen.

There is a third-party utility for this named LeftSider.

The application runs in the System Tray and moves all Title bar buttons to the left side. Closing the application restores the buttons to right.

I don't think that it will work flawlessly, it might break badly in some applications.
