In a notebook type and execute notebooks=Notebooks[] In the resulting list note what position the Basic input palette is at. Then, if this position is n execute nb=notebooks[[n]] When you have done this execute the following SetOptions[nb,Editable->True,WindowSize->{Fit,Fit}]; SetOptions[nb,Editable->False]; This should do the trick... However, one problem that you will most probably have will be that the new notebook that you should type in will be created under the palette, in which calse you can't type the above commands into it. In that case, if at all possible, try to drag the palette so that it is somewhat off the screen so that you can see the notebook that you are working in. If this does not work, you can connect a second monitor to your computer so that the palette is on one and the notebook is on the other. Failing all of this, exit Mathematica and then open the Basic Input Palette in a text editor. Look for the line (near the end) that says WindowSize -> {something in curly brackets} And change that something in curly brackets} to {Fit, Fit}, save the file, and then restart Mathematica. This certainly will do the trick.
