To set 100 columns by 50 lines, 5 pixels away from the top and left
sides of the screen:
winpos 5 5
set lines=50 columns=100
To occupy the whole available screen space:
winpos 0 0
set lines=99999 columns=99999
Add these lines to your vimrc. If you also change the 'guifont' you should,
for best results, change the guifont first and the lines&columns afterwards,
because changing the font may change the size of the gvim window.

property to something more to your liking. From my own, I have
set lines=100 columns=80
Additionally, if you want it at a particular location, you can add
au GUIEnter * winpos 600 0
which will move the window to your desired location (though your
window manager may also be smart about this). For more info,
Hope this helps,
