Button position in dialog fields

In most other desktop environments and on Windows 10, the position of the action buttons, like “save” is in the bottom right corner. But in Gnome it is in the upper right corner.

Is there a way to re-position this kind of buttons to the bottom right corner?

Yes, if you change the GTK3 and GTK4 code (that i mean for the applications) like Gedit that has the Save button in the Header, so you drop the HIG3 design …

For dialogs like Save As or Open windows, you can change from this

to this

by running this command:

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.xsettings overrides "{'Gtk/DialogsUseHeader':<0>}"

but of course, that will be inconvenient in this situation because now you will have to do more mouse travel for that Save As task …

Many thx for this solution. Worked fine so far.
