xfce launcher always maximised windows

I've recently regressed in mindset to the days of yore when all my open applications were maximised. I've now switched to XFCE from gnome and have created a few program launchers on the panel. I have typed the application name in the command field only.

Are there any flags/switches/methods which I can add to force the application to launch maximised?

I'm imagining something like:


which results in the browser opening with default dimensions and placed seemingly randomly on the screen.


firefox -maximised
Which opens the app to cover the whole screen (without being fullscreen - I don't want to lose furniture).
