Windows 7: Automatic override for maximized windows?

Automatic override for maximized windows?

Hi...

When maximizing any new window I would like them to be automatically maximized like this:

(bordered)



instead of like this

(borderless)


Ideally I would like to override the borderless maximized state with the bordered maximized state, so that I never have to encounter the borderless maximized state.

Aside from looking better (personal preference) it is also easer to adjust the windows with the freesnap program (It is not possible to adjust the window in freesnap if the window is in the borderless maximized state.

Are you using the maximise button on the title bar? It looks like its in fullscreen mode (F11), not maximised...

It's not in fullscreen mode, It looks like it's in fullscreen mode because I used Alt-printscreen to take the screenshots, eliminating the windows taskbar from your view .

So I've tried this on my laptop at home (Win7Ent64), Chrome retains the borders when maximised, but nothing else does.
Tried it on a couple PCs and laptops here at work (Win7Ent64) and nothing retains the border, even Chrome.
So Im not too sure on this one Im afraid...
