          Hi Anil,

          It is not possible to change the size of the standard window.

          WIdth can not be change for any element in the web page. This is the limitation of WPC 🙁

          I will suggest you to change or create new layout with the width you want or else adjust the article width itself while inserting the content.

          Hope this will resolve the issue.
