This function has not been fully integrated into the long-term Mathematica system, and is subject to change.

is a global option that specifies the position of the screen by giving the coordinates of two diagonally opposite corners.


  • The position is given by two pairs of numbers that specify the horizontal and vertical dimensions of the screen in pixels. It is specified as ScreenRectangle->{{number, number}, {number, number}}, where each range is expressed as a pair; thus is a 1024 × 768 display.
  • The value of this option cannot be changed; it exists as a way to make this information available to programs, not as a way to reset your screen size.
