I probably should first point out, as a parenthesis, that I’m very new to Ubuntu, and only ended up here exactly because I was trying to find out if I can tell Ubuntu where I want my windows to open. So far I’m really enjoying Ubuntu – having been a user of Windows forever, finally got tired of all their crap and found out there are alternatives!
The only thing so far that is getting to me a bit is exactly the fact that – as opposed to a recent improvement on Windows 10 – Ubuntu doesn’t seem to remember where I place my Windows.
Our screen is a somewhat big 4k TV that, because we’re on a budget, we use for both this PC and, of course as our TV. But, because it’s huge, it’s rather somewhat “neck-straining” when my Windows open anywhere but at the very bottom of the screen. With Windows I just bring the windows of any programs down where I’d want them, and they’ll forever open there, even after startup, that is, until another one of their stupid updates comes through, which always, far from the promised smooth improvements, always changes and messes up everything.
As an average user who doesn’t know much how to use terminal or anything a little more complicated than settings, I’d like to either have an option in said Settings to tell Ubuntu where I’d want my Windows by default (please, including the bottom of the screen!!) or that Ubuntu would remember where I placed them last, and not “forget” it when I next startup…
As a side comment, I’m so far really happy with Ubuntu, actually considering installing it even in our other old PCs as well. They simply seem to go so much faster with it!!!
