Hello Aera,

Hope you're fine :)

I'm afraid that didn't change the fact the window is huge compared to 
the size of the display which is really really pain and as I explained, 
while I can live with, the newcomers I'm converting to GNU/Linux using 
Lubuntu will not be happy at all.

Thank you!

There should be nothing to be pressed by default. Logically, the window 
should be auto adjusted to the size of the display. I have no idea why 
Lubuntu can't do that?!
