Bug ID: 369131
           Summary: Closed application keeps its size when closed even if
                    started on another screen
           Product: kwin
           Version: 5.7.5
          Platform: Archlinux Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: multihead

If you open a window on a certain monitor and close it afterwards; the next
time you start it it will keep its last known size.

However, if you have two monitors, and reopen the application on the other
monitor which has a different resolution (height is smaller), then an
application that was maximized before, will have it's titlebar hidden outside
of range.

There is a workaround by using the 'Move' feature, but it is not nice.

Also, this behavior might occur, when changing the resolution between closing
and reopening.

I suggest to implement a check, whether the window is indeed inside the current
screen, and if not, move it inside, and then, resize, if necessary.
There should be at least an option to specify, whether you want this behavior
for the 'total screen' or the current screen; monitors might have totally
different dpi.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open an application on the monitor with larger height
2. Maximize it and close it
3. Open the application on the other monitor

Actual Results:  
Title bar is out of range

Expected Results:  
Title bar is inside current monitor (better even whole window)
