I use Putty a lot and it always opens in quite a small window. I wondered if there were any parameters or settings I could change that could make it open in a window of different size by default.

Once you're happy with your settings, select Session and then save these settings back as "Default Settings":

These settings will now be the default for new PuTTY windows.
