How to make terminal start maximized?

I am looking for a system-wide way, which would work with the CTRL+ALT+T shortcut as well.

For that you will have to go to Terminal Menu bar EDIT>>Profile Preferences>> Tick User custom default maximum size

There you can set the values according to your desktop resolution.

  • This is not for WINDOW size.
