Most programs should remember window size from loading to loading. E.G., when you close iTunes or Firefox or Safari, the next time you open it, it should be in the same size and location.
If all of your apps are doing this, there might be something wrong with your user account....
Hmmm... I think that might be a toughie. IIRC, Preview is designed to always try and pick an optimal size for the window when it opens a document -- for instance if you open a PDF it tries to pick a window size that will let it display the whole page of the PDF. Office kind of does its own thing, too...Yes now i am used to mac screen and do not miss the full screen mode that much. With that resizing thing, i am having problem only with preview and MSOffice. Any ideas to fix this?
FWIW that's not strictly intrinsically true. At least, Adobe Acrobat (which has as much a claim as anyone to represent how PDFs are "supposed" to work) opens with a fixed window size and then either presents the PDF with letter-boxing and/or shows a portion of the page, depending on the size of the window and the size of the PDF. So it's possible in principle.The size a PDF opens at is usually set in the PDF file itself. I'm not sure there's much you can do about it.
