It is sad to see Notepad opening and filling all my screen,
when I don't need all that much.
Is there a way to customize the size of the window? Horizontally and vertically.

Press the restore button, between minimize and close button at the top right.
If there is any other problem kindly post a comment to explain it further.

Okay, I must add that what I meant was that it opens as a big window. It is NOT full screen. To big of a window. (Of course I now about the three buttons up there.)

Commented:
Move the cursor-pointer to the bottom-right corner
of the NOTEPAD window, and it will change appearance,
from a "single" arrow to a "double-headed" arrow.
Then, press and hold the first mouse-button,
and move the cursor-pointer "up" and to the "left",
and then release the first mouse-button.

Come on!, I have been using computers for years. I know I can resize the window with the mouse!!

What I want is to change the default settings somewhere that say how big will the Notepad window will be whenever it is run.

Hold the SHIFT key while resizing the window.
