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.

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 .

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...

Windows when maximized are too large
