Opening a popup on separate monitor

Hi, I'm a .Net developer currently working on an internal company website. We are developing in Blazor WASM and the site is mandated to run on the latest version of Edge only. My goal is to allow a popup to open (showing secondary information) on a second monitor in a multiple monitor setup. I am attempting to do this with Javascript. Again this is an internal tool, and an expected action. What I am noticing is that Edge seems to clamp down any sort of window.moveBy, window.resizeTo, window.moveTo. I also notice it ignores screenX values included in window.Open. What alternatives do I have? I've tried a few different things already: added the site to trusted sites, read https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=137681#c117. I know of the experimental Microsoft screen enumeration features but I do not want to resort to experimental flags if possible. Is there also a source to read the actual Javascript limitations on this for Edge?

    Hi, @Ryan Tse ,

    For screen size you can use the screen object:

    You could try window.screen.width to get the total screen width of both monitors. Calculate the position 75% of whole width and show up using JQuery.

        jQuery("#dialog").dialog('option', 'position', [x,y]);
