Modify default height of drop-down filter menu in Excel

Hello,

Is there a way to modify the default height of the drop-down menu boxes when using filters in Excel?

The default drop-down menus when filtering in Excel are so small that, without scrolling, only 3-4 options are visible (Fig 1).

Fig 1
Not long ago I noticed that the size of the box can be increased by dragging the bottom-right corner (Fig 2 & 3).

Fig 2Fig 3
Now I'm wondering if there is a way to increase the default size of the boxes — either with a setting somewhere or by using VBA.

Is that possible?

Thanks

No points, but I agree with @D Patel; it can't be adjusted in height.
