SAS 9.4 -- How to set workspace window size

Just started using SAS 9.4 a few days ago, Windows 7 Pro (64 bit)

When I launch SAS 9.4, it always opens the same size on my screen. I would like it to be larger, but not maximized. So I drag the corners to the approx size I want, do my SAS work, and then close SAS. The next time it opens, I have to repeat the process, SAS always opens at a too small window size. I can't find a way to make the new larger size stick. Can someone help?

Same problem with SAS 9.4 Help (via pressing F1 in SAS 9.4).

After you drag the window to the size you want enter "WSAVE" to save that to your profile.

Also - go to Tools --> options --> preferences   and make sure that you have "Save settings on exit" checked.

Then close and restart SAS - the windows should be the size you want.  Make sure you un-check the "Save settings" this time so you don't save changes after this.
