I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and I am loving it. One of the things that never really bothered me when I was using the 10 inch screen on the netbook was the “feature” to auto-maximize every window. Now that i am using it on a large display – it was driving me bonkers.
If you find yourself needing to turn off the auto-maximize feature, here is how:
1. Press Alt + F2 to bring up the Run Application dialog box
2. Type “gconf-editor” without the quotes and press run
That will bring up your Configuration Editor
3. Hit the + beside Apps
4. Scroll down and click on Maximus
5. Check the box next to “no_maximize”
Then close the Configuration Editor.
