Unclear (only to me, perhaps).  What do you mean by "windows size that shows?"

Have you tried clicking on the icon in the upper left (part of the title bar) of the application when it is running and selecting properties to adjust.  Make sure you save the changes so that the next time it runs it should pick those up.

Do you mean to keep the DOS window always on top?

If so, a free program, DeskPins, will help. You can download it from:

Yes, by clicking the "rectangular" button on the title bar (but not full screen, however).

Yes, that's what you can manage via my comment above.

If you use a shortcut to launch the DOS program, then you can also right click on that shortcut, and adjust the properties there.
