    New window in middle of screen

    Hi. Is there a way to get the desktop to place a new window in the middle of the screen, not top left?

    Running Ubuntu MATE 20.04.

    There is a setting for that in MateControlCenter, Look and Feel Section, Windows icon, Placement tab, Center new windows checkbox.

    That is a lot of clicks, so it is possible to open directly from a terminal with "mate-window-properties".

    Many thanks. No wonder I could not find it!

    (I now discover there is a disadvantage to having a wonderful huge screen!)
