Starting a program always maximized in KDE

I thought I would share this since it's pretty useful.

For example lets say you always want Firefox (or whatever program) to start always maximized. Open the program, then right click the top blue bar:

Advanced-->Special Application Settings-->Geometry

From there you can really customize how the application window behaves. If you want Firefox to ALWAYS start maximized select:

Maximized horizontally --> Apply Initially --> Check box
Maximized vertically --> Apply Initially --> Check box

There are really a lot of options to choose from to make any application window behave how you want.

Anyway I thought some of you might find this interesting, although many of you probably already know about this.
