It is also an inconvenience to have to maximize or otherwise modify the
size of the window every single time you need it.  Don't assume that your
needs are the norm.

The next version of setup.exe will remember what size you choose for this
window so, if you don't like the way it works now, it will be a one-time
decision to resize it.
