Unless the application itself remembers its own window settings from session to session there isn't any way to re-size them permanently. sorgie's suggestion will work for explorer windows, but not any other application.

Make sure that on your shortcut properties and start menu properties you have the "Run" option set to "Norma Windowl" not maximized.

Easy . Get some tweaking tools. search for tweak at, or and most of them have an option save windows settings on exit. This should work for most of them. Except a few which have an option to remeber size in the options menu. Check the tweaking tools.

Right click the Icon, go to properties, and set to Normal Window as MACH1 has said. Give him the points too.

Some app's will remember the window size settings ONLY if you exit the app by using the menu action, File> close or exit depending on the app.

Easy! Download some tweaking tools and they have an option save window settings on exit. This enables to save the settings also and the next time you will have the window as you closed it last. But, remember it is an app based setting. Check in the options in the program. There will an option there also.
