summary: Option to start up in full screen mode
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: fun: Just needs tuits, and not many of them.
depends: resize
priority: medium: This should be fixed one day.

While you can start a PuTTY window maximised by Windows mechanisms, currently there's no way to start it full-screen. There should be.

While we're at it, we may as have well an option for `maximised', even though you can already do that by other means.

If we're going to do this, we should perhaps also propagate maximised-ness and full-screen-ness through Duplicate Session (duplicate a currently maximised session and the next one comes up that way too). Then again, perhaps not; I'm not sure whether it's really helpful to have two full-screen PuTTYs open at once. At least one user definitely wants it to work this way for maximised windows, though.

This should perhaps be considered in the context of a general overhaul of resize handling.
