change Linux Mint window placement

When running an application without maximized window, Linux Mint always puts a new opened window it in the left-top corner of the desktop. This and other behaviors can be changed as follow:

Install the CompizConfig Settings Manager (ccsm):

sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

  • Start the Config manager by pressing ALT+F2, then enter “ccsm
  • Go To “windows management” in the left pane
  • Click on “place windows”
  • change the placement method from “smart” to “centered”
