Try this ...

[1] maximize the session manager window
[2] close the session manager window
[3] start the session manager again

It comes up filling the entire screen as if it were maximized, but it is NOT in the maximized state.

You cannot restore it back to its original pre-maximized size.

Which version were you running (⎕SYSVER)?

In [1] when you say session manager, do you mean that or do you mean the whole program?

In [2] and [3] when you say Close/Start the session manager do you mean Close/Start the whole program?

What is in the [General] section of your NARS2000.ini before and after this, relative to the screen resolution and number of screens you have?

I think it happens with all versions, but the one was I using at the time was
⎕sysver
0.5.5.6 Sun Jun 04 22:13:30 2017 Win/64

Yes, I mean the whole program.
And by stopping it, I mean closing the main window with the X.

I never changed any of that, bere it is:

[General]
Version=0.01
xPos=601
xSize=1218
yPos=428
ySize=856
SizeState=0
InitialCategory=0
UpdateFrequency=Monthly
UpdateCheck=8325089/6/3908894727

This same thing happens both on a Windows desktop system with 2 screens, and a Windows laptop.

Is this what you are looking for?

* The program should save the program's main window's size and position just before maximizing it
* If the user closes a maximized program, the main window's pre-maximized size and position are saved in the [General] section along with the state of Maximized.
* When the program is loaded again, the main window's size and position is restored and then maximized.

I'm saying the current action is undesirable.

If I run the SM, and I maximize the window, there is a box-box button in the top right corner to un-maximize it. That's good.

But if I close the window while it is maximized (with the X button at the top right corner), and later start up APL again, it does indeed come up filling the entire screen.

But there is no longer any box-box button in the top right corner to un-maximize it to its original size and position. It is only a single-box button. At that point, the only way to keep it from filling the entire screen is to drag one of the corners so the window is smaller, and to re-position it. Not only is that annoying, but it messes up the layout of the sub-windows insides.
