You can find the size of the screens without going fullscreen with GraphicsEnvironment.

Actual screensize != preferred window size, at least for me. So I decided to ask here.

I like 800x480 or 1024x600
Why? Because they are widescreen, suggested by my GPU / OpenGL thingie and fit within my 1366x768 screen.

Usually fullscreen. If fullscreen is not available, forwhatever reason, I might use borderless desktop resolution or one step lower. I am at 1280x1024

My native resolution is 1650 x 1050 on my MacBook Pro.

I prefer to size my gaming window so that it takes all of the vertical space minus the height of the system menu bar.  I never use the full width.  Thus approximately 1000 x 1020.

I actually find it very annoying for games to take up the entire display if they really don't need to.
