You can in theory change the size of msgbox by changing the root property 'DefaultFigurePosition' via set(0,'DefaultFigurePosition',[....])

There are no options provided to change msgbox()'s size.

There are no color options for msgbox.

Do not forget to restore the original value of the DefaultFigurePosition afterwards. Otherwise other dialogs might look too strange.

You can create a local copy of msgbox.m and modify it to your needs, e.g. as msgboxXtra.m .
