Steps to reproduce

URL:

Repro Steps:

  1. Create a blank web page. Add a an empty javascript section
  2. Add the following code to the script section:
    console.log(screen);
  3. save the file, then open it with IE11 with developer tools open
  4. Click on the console tab, expand the screen object posted in the log, and look for a property that returns the width of all the monitors to the left of the current one.

Expected Results:

I should be able to access the property from javascript when writing code. One example scenario would be using the “window.open” function to open browsers in the center of the current monitor the browser is positioned in. Having the screen.availableLeft property would allow me to pass in the correct offset.

Actual Results:

Dev Channel specific:

No
