I didn't think the time to think but try this

NotebookCreate[WindowSize -> {600, 600}, WindowMargins -> {{0,
Automatic}, {Automatic, 0}}, WindowMovable -> False]

In this way you have a new notebook with Postion at the upper left
corner of the screen, you have set
its size and you will have fix its placement. Try to move it!

If you want your notebook to be movable do not set WindowMovable ->

Something funny now

wind = Insert[Tuples[DeleteCases[Tuples[{0, Automatic}, 2], {a_, a_}],
2], {{400, 400}, {100, 100}}, -1];

(NotebookCreate[WindowSize -> {300, 300}, WindowMargins -> #1] & ) /@

BTW, for users of Mathematica 6

The command has been by superseded CreateDocument.

> Hello Dimitris.  That works but the newly created notebook is created at the center of the screen.  Hate to be picky but the most convenient way I've found to use Mathematica is to have the notebook and BasicInput palette fill the screen with the notebook on the left and the palette on the right.
> Anyway to create the notebook with the top left corner at the top left corner of the Mathematica window?  Also, anyway to change the setting for File->New menu item to create the new notebook this way?  When I go into Notebook Options->WindowProperties->Window Size, this does not seem to have any effect on new notebooks.
