This has been a complaint for a long time. It's been brought to the attention of the developers many times. So far no solution.

BOINC Manager remembers the window size quite well, only the position is handled by windows, as it is for many other programs as well.

Window size has been a problem for me for the last few BOINC versions. Everytime I restart my computer, I have to allow BOINC to start (because I'm using Vista, so that's a separate issue) and then I have to resize my window because it defaults to something so small that nothing is visible.

I even thought that if I resized my BOINC Manager, then exited BOINC Manager that it might save the window size then, but no luck. I still have to resize every time I open BOINC Manager.

Start the BOINC Manager.
Size it the way you want.
Close the BOINC Manager (NOT by shutting the system down).
Re-start BOINC Manager and see what size the window is.

It remembers window size when re-launching BOINC, but it still reverts to the smaller window size upon restart.

And after a reboot.
