XFCE desktop question - What and/or where is this setting called?


Hi,

I am not sure but one thing I wish to change in XFCE is to always have windows I launch or am using, even if not maximized to appear overtop the xfce panels that exist and/or are locked in place. What is this called exactly? And where or what should I look for in the settings or config files to have this achieved? Thanks a lot.

Are you asking about the task list? If so add "Window Buttons" to your panel.

Or are you asking about auto-start appliactions? If So "Settings Manager" > "Session and Startup" > "Application Autostart" tab.

Hi,

Actually neither. Have a look at the attached image. In it you will see my current panel. But also, see Google Chrome is open right now, technically at full size as XFCE sees it. However, it could still be maximized but even doing that it would stay the same. It never goes above the panel at this point, See pic two. See its maximized? So getting it above the panel to fill the entire screen is what setting I am looking to change. Is this focus stealing or something else causing that? All other DE can be fullscreen natively. Any idea what to change anywhere?

maximized and fullscreen are different. it seems i see image1:chrome is full-windowed; image2:chrome is maximized (i can tell because the top right corner is not rounded). if you want full-screen, try pressing F11 while in chrome.

Hit F11. I think that's what your're looking for, assuming I'm picking up what you're laying down.
