Is there anything I can add to a *.desktop file (used in my Launcher panel) to make the application always open maximized? In particular, I'm looking at the gnome-terminal.
gnome-terminal has an undocumented --maximize option (and also --full-screen). You can add that to the launcher's EXEC line to have it start maximized.

Use gnome-terminal --full-screen in the Exec of your desktop file to start gnome-terminal full screen.
