Looks like something different than full screen mode.
How exactly do you get the two different views with the window widgets at a different size?

I don't think the size is different, rather it is the same app but perhaps a difference between dark mode and light mode?

Ah, OK. I didn't notice the gap between the two screen shots. I thought it was all one screenshot, with the top area showing full screen mode, but not quite there. I still don't know what the OP said about a "combined app top bar" mode of some kind. I guess it is something that I have never used, if not a full-screen mode result.
Maybe it's just an app that doesn't support dark mode properly (?)

hey guys, thanks for your replies... i got one screenshot from my macbook running on high sierra and the other one is from my mac mini running on mojave newest version. if i remember right it was a appearence feature were the user was able to choose between "top-bar"-Mode or "integrated-top-bar"-Mode like you can see on the screenshots... it would be a mess if thats gone? it kills the integrity of the design...

when was there ever an 'appearance feature' you could select like that? anyway, the current look is more modern, and 'streamlined' (for me &, obviously, for apple)...

Looks like you are showing the toolbar in two different windows, and not the top bar. (I think)
It would help if you can show what the top menubar looks like, and not just a window toolbar.

Not a setting like you describe in the system, as installed. It may be a setting that is found in one of the several utilities that are out there.

The style of the title bar is decided by each app. You should contact the developers of that app and ask them.

Slack? If that is the app that you use, then likely that Slack is what provides that integrated menubar.
The macOS system doesn't do that, as far as I know.

I agree. You should contact Slack support. They might have removed that option, or it's not something that the macOS system supports now, and Slack can't add it back.
