Have you tried resizing the form/datasheet view before you save?

You may have tabbed documents turned on.

Go to Options -> Current Database -> under Application optins at the top you will see Document Window Options. If the Tabbed Documents option is checked, the form will always open maximised. The Overlapping Windows option will allow the form to open at your desired size.

You may need to change the option then close and reopen the database to see the change in window options.
