Whenever I launch Gazebo from the command line, it isn't in fullscreen mode but the window is maximized and takes up the whole screen. Is there a way I can launch gazebo with a smaller window that doesn't take up the entire screen?

Open Gazebo, resize and reposition the window the way you want it to look when you open it, then on the top menu, choose:

File -> Save Configuration

The next time you open Gazebo, it will open that way ;)

Behind the scenes, Gazebo is updating the ~/.gazebo/gui.ini file with geometry information like this:


You can also change these values manually if you'd like.
