This has been an old bug for quite some time. Has anyone figured out how to get Powerpoint 2010 to unmaximize? Pressing the restore button doesn't do it. Neither does the right-click on the menu bar. The Maximize check box is checked and I can't remove the checkmark. Does anyone know how to fix this? Can I edit the registry somehow?
Disabling desktop effects did not help.
Unchecking "Allow windows manager to control the windows" had side effects (window always on foreground).
What works for me with Word, Excel and Powerpoint is:
Start System Settings
Select Window Behaviour
Select Window Rules
Click "New..." to create a new Window Rules
Enter the description
Window Class: Regular Expression. I use .\b(winword.exe|excel.exe|powerpnt.exe)\b.
Check "Match whole window class"
Check on tab "Size & Position"
Check "Full screen": value Forced, No
Check "Ignore Requested Geometry": value Forced, Yes

CrossOver Forums: the place to discuss running Windows applications on Mac and Linux
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
