CreateDocument[{
  Plot3D[Cos[x] Sin[y], {x, -2 \[Pi], 2 \[Pi]}, {y, -2 \[Pi],
    2 Pi}]},
 WindowElements -> {}, WindowFrame -> "Palette",
 WindowSize -> FitAll,
 WindowMargins -> {{0, Automatic}, {Automatic, 0}}
 ]

you might want to look up the option names in the documentation to get
the finetuning right...

hth,

albert
