Programs launching on wierd places with KDE Plasma


I just installed KDE Plasma on Manjaro. I set it up like I like it, I have one problem with it that I didn't find a solution for. Most of the programs launch on "wrong" places on the desktop (not where I want them to). I used xfce until now and got used to it. For example when I launch Konsole, it launches on a seemengly random edge of the screen (I would like it to launch in the same place every time where I want, like on xfce). Also things like Chromium don't remember where they were closed and it will always open on my second monitor (not primary) even if it was moved to the primary monitor last session. Are there solutions to this or is it just something I'm going to have to adapt to?

Been a while since I used plasma but I think you can right click on an apps title bar and select some options about how and where it launches. Size, position, etc. Don’t quote me but worth a check.

@sevendogsbsd Did a bit of searching and managed to find it! If anyone else needs this: right click a programs title bar, select "More Actions", then "Configure Special Application Settings". This will open up a window where you can change the position, scale etc. select the "Remember" option instead of "Do not affect". Thanks for your help @sevendogsbsd!
