Steps to reproduce

I’m on Windows 10 Microsoft Edge 38.14393.0.0
Running in Edge browser"", null, “height=1000, width=400”); will open new window full size if screen height is less than set one (<1000 in current example). On large screen (> 1000 height) all works correct - width and height of new window are honored.
Here is a link to example

  1. Open link in Edge - click first button ‘Click to open small window’ - works correct
  2. Open link in Edge - click second button ‘Click to open large window’ - opens in full screen
  3. Try in other browsers

    • Thanks for filing this bug! We investigated and discovered that this is a known issue that requires work at the Windows level to work correctly. I’ve resolved this bug as a duplicate of the bug we have tracking this dependency.
