point: It was Jan's example you used.

point2: Not knowing the parameters that _you_ desire, it is normal to
present the command syntax with a ?place-holder? where you
would put _your_ intended parameters, ie:
xterm -geometry <geometry>
^^^^^^^^^^ where you put what you wish

xterm -geometry 80x25, 132x60+200+400

You are past the _basic_ point-and-shoot, mousey graphical user
interface here. It would behoove you to consult a text dealing with
the *nix command line, or (at least) the man files and help extensions.
