I saved a session in PuTTY where terminal width and height have been set. Now I want to make automatic logon and found that this could be easily done from command line. It really logs on. But then I searched for an ability to set terminal window width and height from command line and didn't found any suitable options.

Customise the width and height in one of your putty sessions (remember to save it!), and then load the appropriate session using -load on the command line. For example:

putty.exe -load "my session" -ssh user@host -pw password
