You can't. Your only choices are to live with it or use a JWindow (which has no title bar at all). Lastly, you could catch the close event and have it do nothing.

You don't even need to 'catch the close event' to prevent window closing. Just call setDefaultCloseOperation(WindowConstants.DO_NOTHING_ON_CLOSE). But there is no way to change set of buttons shown.
