[virt-tools-list] How to open the graphical console from the command line

I am a newbie with KVM. Every day, I normally start virt-manager, select
my one and only virtual machine, click on the "Start" toolbar button,
and then click on the "Open" toolbar icon. I finally close virt-manager,
and only keep the other window with the graphical console. That's too
many mouse clicks.
I would like to start and open the virtual machine graphical console
with a single mouse click.
I can issue command "virsh start UbuntuMATE1804" to start the virtual
machine, and I can issue command "virt-viewer UbuntuMATE1804" to open
the graphical console. However, that graphical console is not exactly
the same as the one that virt-manager opens. For example, it lacks the
"Virtual Machine" menu.
It seems that virt-manager launches a process like this:
/usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 -name UbuntuMATE1804 -S -machine
pc-i440fx-xenial,accel=kvm,usb=off -cpu Opteron_G5 -m 4096 -realtime
mlock=off - (text cut off by ps)
Is there any way to get virt-manager or something else to create or
start such a qemu command for me? Ideally, the script would also check
whether the virtual machine is already running, and not try to start it
if it is.
Please copy me on all the answers, for I am not subscribed to this
Thanks in advance,
