Here is an example of using several Notebook Options to achieve what
you are looking for:

CreateDocument[{Plot3D[
   Cos[x] Sin[y], {x, -2 \[Pi], 2 \[Pi]}, {y, -2 \[Pi], 2 Pi}]},
 WindowSize -> All,
 WindowMargins -> {{Automatic, Automatic}, {Automatic, 30}},
 WindowElements -> {},
 ShowCellBracket -> False]


Hope this helps,

David
