Thanks for the response it gave me an idea that works. Seems if I
alt-F5 to unmaxize the app's screen, then make it somewhat smaller
and then normally exit the app, the next time it is auto started
when I logon to G3 shell, it is NOT maximized.
I see that with the current version of gnome shell, the idea is that
an app should take up the entire screen when it is opened.
Hopefully that will change sometime with the addition of a user
parameter to change the behavior.
I don't think this statement is correct. Applications opened up for
the first time don't start maximized. I just tested this on F17
x86_64 with an app I've never used before and the window opened as a
If I understand Ray properly, this behavior happens if the earlier
state of the window (or whatever size it starts with by default) was
close to maximized.
To test that, I just opened up the same app, increased its window size
to very large (but not maximized), and closed it. When I opened it
again, it started maximized.
