Or take a look at 
http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2003-09/msg00040.html

Basically, when double clicking, you reference the file type, which
tells windows to open stata with 1M of memory. You just need to change
that reference to however much memory you _generally_  want it to open
with.

that post was found by searching the archives for "memory" and "clicking".
