Perhaps some lateral thinking is called for. Rather than change the size of the window, how about changing the size of the plotting region within the window. For example:

split.screen(matrix(c(0,0.5, 0,1, 0.5,1,0,1), ncol=4, byrow=T)) plot(1:5)

split.screen(matrix(c(0,0.5, 0,0.5, 0.5,1,0.5,1), ncol=4, byrow=T)) plot(1:5)
