Windows 7: How to Permanently Resize "Open" Window in Office Applications

How to Permanently Resize "Open" Window in Office Applications


I am trying to permanently increase the size of the window that pops up when you click the "Open" icon in Excel or Word (version 2010). I have attached a screen shot of the window that I am referencing.

First, I will start off by saying I know how to temporarily increase the size of this window. It's easy. Just click the lower right hand corner of the box that I have circled in red in my screenshot and drag the box to be larger.

The new, larger window size will "stick" for the remainder of the active Windows session. However, once I restart the computer or log off, this change is lost. The window goes back to it's original size.

How can I permanently change the size of this window so that it will be unaffected by a computer restart or user logoff?

Thanks for the help.
