Window Geometry

The positions and size of the window of an X client is controlled by the -geometry switch.

<client> -geometry <width>x<height>+<xoffset><yoffset>

Example: To open a new XTerm zero pixels from the left side and 37 pixels from the top of the screen with width of 89 columns and 71 rows run:

xterm -geometry 89x71+0+37
