Hi Bernard,
Currently there is no preference for the window size, but you can use  
the --geometry startup option.  That requires starting Chimera from  
the system command line, or on Windows, editing the properties of the  
icon to include the option.

Description of startup options including --geometry:

General information on how to specify startup options:

Alternatively, you can create a Chimera command file that includes  
the "windowsize" command, and specify that file to be executed  
automatically when the command line is first shown in later Chimera  
sessions.  That is done in the preferences, Midas category.

I hope this helps,
