How to make Evince open maximized [Solved]

Every time I open Evince, it only will open to 1/3 of the available desktop space. Most apps just default to the size you had them when they were last closed? There is no setting I can find to adjust this, any one have an idea how to open evince maximized?

Thanks

Re: Evolution Email Client

I would go to /var/cache/apt/archives/ search for evolution, click on one of the older versions to install it, and try that, you also might want to downgrade any recent networking software if that does not work? I notice bind9 setting in my update manager, I have not upgraded it yet, maybe that is y...

Re: Im exploring the KDE environment.

X2 I went to openSuse KDE when Gnome 2 replaced Gnome 1, stayed there for a couple of years until Mint released a KDE version. I am happy, and there is no learning curve to KDE upgrades, just more features.

Re: Chromium should be the default browser

Firefox is fitting to Linux as a true open source browser.

Anything Google does is just quasi open source.

Re: New people need to stop using 18.X and use 17.3.

I have 18.1 installed along side 17.3, just a matter of taking the time to move some info from old home to new, and give it a shot.

Re: New people need to stop using 18.X and use 17.3.

I tried 18.0 and I went back to 17.3 as I use my PC for business purpose, but even some of us vets should stick with a stable release.

Re: creating boot usb

Mine wont boot when I use the USB ports on the front of the PC that are remote to the mobo, but when I use the ports in the back it boots fine.

Maybe you should try making the live USB with Unetbootin or Rufus?

Re: Windows after Mint or Virtual Machine

Why not install XP or Win7 32 Bit, it will need less resources from the host.

Giving 4 cores and 1/2 the ram to a guest seems like a lot, but once you close the VM Linux will recover all of those resources, so you should be okay.
