I'm trying to get apps to launch in windowed mode by default.
Don't know of any app that can change the default window mode. Not sure if it's even possible with Android. I think it can only be done on each individual app, which is why it can only be done through shortcuts. Mulit window manager as well as Android itself can not differentiate one app from another. With Windows it can be done by using keywords. Try contacting the developers of Multi window manager to suggest it. You're not the only one who would love that feature.
What sucks is all of this should already be natively part of Android, including multi window. Not sure why it wasn't from the beginning. I'm guessing it used to be a limited memory issue.
I just thought of a possible workaround. You might be able to use "Tasker" and make profiles for individual apps to open a certain way or change the window mode automatically when opened
If you try it let me know what happened..
