Every time I open Konsole, or any number of other programs, its y-size is 100% of my desktop, which is a pain. I have the setting "save size and position on exit" checked, and I tried unchecking it then checking it again. I also tried lots of different ways to exit the program, but every time it still opens really big. How can I fix this?

Window rules

  • Configure settings specifically for a window

System Settings > Window Behavior > Window Rules

Special Window/Application Settings

Right click the window border > Advanced > Special Window/Application Settings > Size & Position

Thanks, turns out middle-clicking on the maximize button, as per the first link, fixed it. –  Jon Feb 11 '12 at 22:35
