  • WindowSize is an option for Notebook which specifies the size of window that should be used to display a notebook on the screen.
  • WindowSize-> w , h gives the width and height of the window in printer's points.
  • Setting either width or height to Automatic causes the size of the window to be determined from the setting for WindowMargins and the size of your screen.
  • The setting for WindowSize changes whenever you resize a window interactively in the front end.
  • On most computer systems, the front end does not allow window sizes below a certain minimum value.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.10.2Section 2.10.13.
