RE advice on re-installing
thank you
I have done full fresh installations of Ubuntu before (reformatting hard drive) to successfully fix a problem, because, onerous as it is, it is actually quicker than learning how to deal with every linux /Ubuntu quirk.

Did that and the problem remains.
Used the gsetting get commands, and they returned window width=910 and height=717.

Re-installing Ubuntu 18.04 will not be useful, just like re-installing
Evolution was not useful.  You should try to move beyond this mindset
where re-installing software will fix it; that virtually never works on
GNU/Linux (or an other system with reasonably-written software).

Please take a look at this message from last July and see if the steps
provided solve your problem (running the gsettings reset-recursively

It seems that somehow one of your default evolution shell settings has
gotten so large that it can't be used.
