I'm using Ubuntu 22.04LTS. When I open a new window, the new window will appear in the upper left corner of the screen. That's terrible. I'd like to know how to make the new window display in the center of the screen. I have downloaded the CCSM(CompizConfig Settings Manager) and changed the settings, but it doesn't work. HELP!

Assuming you're running GNOME, try this command:

gsettings set org.gnome.mutter center-new-windows true 

If that doesn't work, try installing GNOME Tweaks using sudo apt install gnome-tweaks, launching it, then going to "Windows" and enabling the "Center New Windows" option.

  • Thank you very much! I installed GNOME Tweaks and then finished the setting successfully! May 21, 2022 at 3:30
