I'd like to know how I can make GIMP 2.8 (the latest stable release) open in a maximised window. Every time I open it I have to click on the maximise button so that I can see the complete window and frankly it's getting annoying.
I'm using the new Single-Window Mode, which probably helps. I've tried the method of choosing "Maximized" in the Properties of a shortcut, but that just maximises the splash screen, and the actual window is still un-maximised.
I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. If anybody could help this would be awesome, I use GIMP very often.
By the way, I'd also like to know if anybody knows how I can open most common image files with the "Edit with GIMP" option in the right-click menu. I made some .reg files that would do this with GIMP 2.6, but even after editing the .reg files and using them, if I click the option it will ask me to choose a program to open with. Except for with .gif files, those open properly.
