    Hi! Is there any way to set the size and/or position of applications back to the original size and starting positions?

    You could delete the .plist files of the applications' window positions you want to reset, but that .plist file deletion will also reset some other settings in those applications.
    What about resizing them via the bottom right corner (if you use 10.6 and earlier) or the sides (if you use 10.7) or using the green button on the top left?

    Yeah, you could delete the .plist files of the applications for which you want to reset window positions. Those files are found in your Home folder /Library/Preferences. If you have Lion, that Library folder is hidden. I don't, so I can't remember the trick for getting it to show up.

    The green button might be the easiest solution. That should set the window to the maximum size (width anyway) needed to view its contents.
