I haven't been that bothered by Dynamics GP always starting full screen, but after a client upgrade I was asked by them about it.
To stop Dynamics GP always starting full screen you need to change the Dex.ini file setting to false; this needs to be done on every client. If you are a GP Power Tools user you can use the Dex.ini Configuration tool to change all clients, otherwise you will need to manually update all clients.
