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.


When you open PuTTY select Window in the tree on the left:

You can change the number of rows and columns in the Window here.

Alternatively, select Appearance and change the font size:

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.

    Bad answer. He asked about window size, you gave him font settings. – simon tan Aug 1 '19 at 23:19
  • @simontan You may have missed the very first part of the answer, where he points out the rows/cols setting, which controls the window size. – Daniel B Dec 31 '19 at 13:00

I just edited the Columns from default 80 to 180, opened the session and it works.

Load the session
Under Category > Windows > Set the size of the windows > Columns > 180
Open the session.

I don't know if this is the proper way of doing it.
