Hi Sanjay,

There are two related bugs for this issue:

    Blender (windowed) run in fullscreen

    blender windowed is not windowed with compiz enable

It appears compiz causes the problem. There are two ways, to resolve this at the moment:

1. Start blender in a terminal with a command similar to:

    $ blender -w -p 0 0 1024 768

2. Uncheck the "Legacy Fullscreen Support" in Advanced Desktop Effects

    System > Preferences > Advanced Desktop Effects Settings

If this menu option is not available, then you have to install the following:

    $ sudo aptitude install compizconfig-settings-manager

Afterwards you navigate to the application as described above, go to the Utility section, click on the Workarounds button, then uncheck Legacy Fullscreen Support, then close the CompizConfig Settings Manager.

Please report back here and change the question status to Solved if this resolves your question.

Hi Harvey Muller,

 I just did only these things

              Added one key board shortcut for "Toggle full screen mode"

              System>Preferences>Keyboard shortcuts>Toggle full screen mode

              and then enabled "Resize window"

              System > Preferences > Advanced desktop effects and settings > Window management > Resize window
