How to change figure size within the figure window

Hello! I've been trying to make a subplot with 3 panels using subtightplot and my axis labels (both x and y) are being cut off. I can get the xis labels to appear If I constantly drag the corners of the figure window (to resize it) but that makes my figure huge. Is there any way to set the interior figure size and window size so I can see my axis labels? I've tried using 'InnerPosition' and 'OuterPosition', but that seems to only change the size of the entire figure
Thanks!

I think you want to change the position of the axes, not the figure. So try
ax1pos = get(gca,'position')
which will give you a four-element array containing
  1. the lower left corner x position,
  2. the lower left corner y position,
  3. the axis width,
  4. the axis height.
Adjust the second and fourth values to get some room for labels. Then set the new axis position with
set(gca,'position',ax1pos_adjusted)
