Notepad Window

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.

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.)

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.

Hi Y'all....

RIGHT CLICK = (R)CLICK
LEFT CLICK= (L)CLICK

(R)CLICK NOTEPAD on the task bar...
(L)CLICK  MOVE

use the arrow key's to move the window down or up until the cursor can acces the edge of the window...
then resize it using the mouse.
