Steps to reproduce

Hi there I hope someone actually reads this. :)

When duplicating a tab and dragging it into the desktop to create a new window, the new window is not the same size as the original. It’s always longer vertically.

It’s REALLY annoying as I need to duplicate a few windows all of the identical size.

Also, Is there any way to save a layout. For example I’ve got 3 edge browsers open of a specific size in a specific location. I need to shut the computer down and restart.

I’d love to be able to restore all the windows to their exact locations and size.

    • This IS a broken feature. When you duplicate a tab it is not the same size.
      That is not a duplicate, is a resemblance.

    • Hello,

      This behavior is not related to the Duplicate shortcut; it happens when any tab is dragged away from the origin browser (e.g. dragged to the desktop). This behavior is working as designed and is not considered a bug.
