Word: Default Size of Windows on Different Monitors

Your monitor determines the size of the window in which new documents are initially displayed. If you are using the standard monitor, such as the monitor for a Macintosh SE computer, the document window fills the screen when you open a new document in Word version 4.00.

If you are using a large monitor, such as the standard Macintosh II monitor, Word bases the size of a new document window on the width of the available text area between the left and right margins. The window may not fill the screen if you are using a small page size or large margins.

Once you change the size or position of a window and save the document, that size and position will be recalled the next time you open the document.

You cannot change the default size of a new window. You can, however, set up a blank template document that is in the desired size and position. You then can double-click this file, instead of the application, to start the program. Do a Save As to create a new name for your first document.
