Terminal Window placement on Ubuntu 22.04

tw flag

I just installed Ubuntu 22.04 on a new laptop.. But, I have Ubuntu 22.04 already installed on another laptop.. On the old one, if I do CTRL-SHIFT-T to make a terminal, the terminal first appears at a certain spot, then the next terminal (if I do CTRL-SHIFT-T again) shows up under that first one, then to the right of the first terminal, and basically it forms a grid.

On the new laptop tho, it shows up at the very top left corner, and then each next terminal sort of just ... appear almost on top of each other.. I made two screencasts to show what I mean:

  1. This is the "new" way, that I _don't_want.
  2. This is the "old" way, that I'd like to happen on the new laptop.

How can I configure Ubuntu 22.04 on the new laptop to behave like the old one does?


I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
