What I hated was that when I opened up some new terminal windows that it left some space unused between the windows. Okay, there are some tiling windows managers, yet I still like the whole desktop feeling xfce gives me (without the resource bloat Gnome & Kde).
So I checked what size my terminal was when I had four of them open, and I set that value as their “startup size”. How can you do this?
