Is there a way to do that? Disable maximising and restoring of a fixed 640 by 480 window. Possible?

Yup. Use the function. It takes a list of options as one of its arguments. In there you can specify the exact size of the window you are opening, whether or not to use scrollbars, whether or not to allow resize, and several other things. HTH

Is there a good reason to do that though? I try not to manipulate the user's environment too much because it can get frustrating for the user. I went to a site that gave me a window with no options, and it had disabled the close button in the upper corner. Maybe your users would prefer to have those option available to them ...
