@vindex frameset-filter-alist
When the desktop restores the frame and window configuration, it
uses the recorded values of frame parameters, disregarding any
settings for those parameters you have in your init file (@pxref{Init
File}). This means that frame parameters such as fonts and faces for
the restored frames will come from the desktop file, where they were
saved when you exited your previous Emacs session; any settings for
those parameters in your init file will be ignored. To disable this,
customize the value of @code{frameset-filter-alist} to filter out the
frame parameters you don't want to be restored.
