Hi Heinz,

if I use menus and launchers, I prefer to edit them manually.

Perhaps after editing


there's no need to edit the menus and launchers anymore, but I don't

JFTR I dropped xfce4-terminal in favour of roxterm. IMO it's the best
terminal emulation. However, roxterm needs to be launched with the
-m, --maximise, --maximize option too.

To edit menus there are tons of GUIs available, but for DEs such as
Xfce editing menus by those tools is limited.

You could try
mozo, menulibre, alacarte and cinnamon-menu-editor
and add --maximize to the menu entries.

I didn't read those links myself, but they might be useful:
