Hi Jean-Paul,
For a more reliable response, please send questions to chimera- 
users at cgl.ucsf.edu rather than to me directly -- I might be out (sick  
or vacation), or others may know the answer when I don't!

There is no preference for window sizes and locations.  However,  
there is a startup option "--geometry" for the main window (but not  
other tools, sorry):

How to specify startup options depends on your type of computer:

Some related things...
After you start Chimera, you can use the "windowsize" command to  
specify the pixel dimensions of the main window.

If you save a session, it should restore with the same main window  
size.  I don't think the location is saved, however.

I hope this helps,
