As part of an AppleScript I'm writing, I need to open a web page spread across two vertically stacked monitors. With a traditional horizontal two-monitor setup, I can can easily set the bounds. But seems like either Chrome or AppleScript overrides bounds settings that specify a window partially above or below the primary monitor to avoid creating renegade windows that get stuck above the menu bar or below the dock. Is there any way I can override this to create a larger window?

Here's a rough estimate with arbitrary size (final monitor size for the project will be constant, but has not been established yet):

tell application "Google Chrome" activate set aWin1 to make new window with properties {mode:"normal", bounds:{0, 0, 1000, 2000}}

Thanks in advance for any replies!
