If you don’t want to use this method or looking some other method to open notepad in customized size (without using any specific shortcut file), then you can resize Notepad window as per your requirement. When you will open notepad next time it will remember the size which you customized last time. To do this follow steps – 

  1. Open Notepad and right click on the top – title bar. 
  2. Selecting ‘Size’ from the menu options and resize Notepad as per your need(with the arrow icon).
  3. Once you will close this Notepad window and open next time you will see customized window size. 

Now after above method,  if you close any Notepad file maximized (or customized) and open next time – It will open maximized or same size which you customized last time.
