Windows 7: Set default Windows size/position

Set default Windows size/position

Hi everyone,

I've had chance to try out Mac OS and I liked how the OS had set windows. Every window after maximizing looked like on the screen. Even Safari for Windows appears like this and I really like it. I would like apps to appear like this always without resizing them myself. Is it possible ?

Thanks,

Greenie

I don't understand what you mean. You want to maximize the Windows, but not to the full width of the screen, like in the attached picture?

I only explained how does it work on MacOS. It doesn't need to be in maximize view. As you know if you edit the size of any window and you close it then it saves it's size so when you open the window again it has size like when you closed it. I just don't want resize every window so I wanted ask if somehow I could make that all windows will have set their size.
