Browser window size at system startup

  • Hi All!
    When the system starts, Opera starts automatically for me.
    Where can I set the window size in which the browser should start.
    Thanks!

  • This is quite common for the Linux version of Opera. In Puppy Linux, we modify the package to run from a wrapper-script; this allows the addition of any "switches" from the Chromium-base command line. Needs the addition of the

    --start-maximized
    

    ...."switch" to the wrapper-script's exec line.

    However, for the downloaded .deb package you can get the same effect by going into /usr/share/appliations, finding the opera.desktop file, opening it up with a text-editor, and doing the following:-

    Change the Exec line from:-

    opera %U
    

    .....so that it now reads:-

    opera %U --start-maximized
    

    This will do what you want. (Make sure to leave a space before you add the new stuff on the end. Save, exit, then re-start the browser.)

    Miq. 🙂

  • Thanks!
    In Ubuntu where is the opera.desktop file?
    Opera installed from Snap.
