Giving the possibility to pre-configure the state of the session window

 This option in the connection file (.nxs) allows to define how the NoMachine client window will be started for that session:

 <option key="Session window state" value="normal" />

State 'normal' means that the window doesn't change position or dimension.

Accepted values are:  'normal', 'maximized', 'fullscreen' or 'multiscreen'

For example, to pre-configure the session to start in a maximized window, set the key to:

<option key="Session window state" value="maximized" />

or to open the session in a fullscreen window set:

<option key="Session window state" value="fullscreen" />

Note that if the user will change settings (e.g. will resize the window), the new settings will override the pre-configured one in the connection file.

It's also possible to define the state of the client window. For example to make the client starting in a maximized window, edit the player.cfg file and set:

<option key="Window state" value="fullscreen" /> 
Accepted values are 'normal', 'fullscreen' or 'multiscreen'.

Exiting from the multiscreen mode will override this setting.
