Making Terminal always start maximized

If you want gnome-terminal to open fullscreen when you open it with Gnome Do or the Applications menu, put the following into a file named gnome-terminal.desktop and put that in ~/.local/share/applications.

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Terminal
Comment=Use the command line
TryExec=gnome-terminal
Exec=gnome-terminal --window --maximize
Icon=utilities-terminal
Type=Application
X-GNOME-DocPath=gnome-terminal/index.html
