Hello Pam,

Here is a great link on windows:

But, since you have a non-functioning neural cortex, you can use this on
NN3+, IE4+:
// move the screen position of the window to the specified x and y offset
window.moveTo(iX, iY)

The other (less compatible) way is to pass attributes in the third parameter
of window.open()

NN uses screenx and screeny like this: window.open(URL, "target",

IE uses top and left like this: window.open(URL, "target", "top=0;left=0")
