Let atom open maximized windows


#1

It would be nice for me to have atom open windows maximized when the last window closed was already maximized.


#2

Is this helpful? https://atom.io/packages/remember-window


#3

Thanks, it comes close but no…
It comes close as it remembers the window size. Atom seems to be able to do that already in a certain extend.

Though as this is a feature request I like to ask for this specific feature.

And for those who are technical: I guess atom-shell is lacking an isMaximized feature? No?
This might be the fundamental problem (see link)…

(and for those asking for the click in the url… I seem to be limited to post max 2 links / post… Or that’s how I interpret the error I’ve got… I’m not even able to paste a single link)

In Ubuntu, all Atom windows first open to fill the entire desktop, but are not maximized.


#5

Same here on Ubuntu. Would be great if Atom was closed maximised, it remains maximised when re-opened.


#6

Dittto - it’s a trivial thing, but annoying to have to maximise every time Atom is opened.


#7

I noticed that every time I open Atom on linux, the window height is about 1.5em LESS than it was when I closed it. So if I open Atom, maximize it, close and open again it’s not maximized. Close and open it a few more times and the window gets shorter and shorter - it’s slightly annoying to have to keep re-maximizing but hardly a deal-breaker


#8

I moved a post to an existing topic: Every time I open Atom, it is slightly too big for my screen


#9

Implementation update:

Atom-shell 0.14 should have the isMaximized api function. Atom is currently using an older version, but hopefully not for long.

Once done that, I hope it just takes some fiddling with the open/close window events and the size storage to get it done. I really didn’t take a look to that part yet…


#10

same problem here.
every time atom starts not maximized, I had to click the maximized button manually.
atom version:0.117.0
runs on windows 7


#11

Ok, all dependencies should be in right now. I’m now hoping it only takes a little code in the atom repo alone to get the maximized window restore.


#12

Atom should now restore the maximized state correctly

I guess this topic can be closed


#13

Thanks for the update! Closing.
