Question How do I get my file browser to always open in full screen dimensions?


I have an application with an export file browser and I want the browser to always open at full screen dimensions. Whenever I resize it and reopen it, it returns to its original (smaller) dimensions. How can I change this?

Might help if you gave some useful information, such as what application, under what window manager, on what version/distro of Linux.

I'm not familiar with the "export" file browser. In konqueror you can save a profile. Select the "Save Window Size with Profile Button".

The you can duplicate the konqueor menu item and change the command from

kfmclient openProfile filemanagement
to
kfmclient openProfile <your_profile_name>

Often you can launch a gui program in the console and enter the --help option to learn options that you can add to the command entry for an gui shortcut or menu item:
example:
did you know that you can convert pdf files to postscript files in the console using acroread!
Quote:
-toPostScript [options] -pairs pdf_file_1 ps_file_1 ...
It has many more options, such as exporting only odd pages, reverse order, etc.
