Step 1: Tell us which platform you are talking about...

[Assuming that it is Windows since they are usually the ones
forgetting that theirs is not the only platform in the world]

Step 2: Do you start R using as shortcut? (If no, make one)
Step 3: Right-click the icon and choose "Properties"
Step 4: Edit the "Target" field by adding e.g "--nsize=400k
        --vsize=20M" or whatever is relevant for your task. 

On less user-friendly platforms, just start R with "R --nsize=400k
--vsize=20M" or whatever is relevant for your task.
