    Summary

    Window.outerHeight gets the height in pixels of the whole browser window. It represents the height of the whole browser window including sidebar (if expanded), window chrome and window resizing borders/handles.

    This property is read-only; it has no default value.

    Syntax

    On return, outWindowHeight contains the height of the outside of the window.

    To get the inner height of a window, i.e. the height of the page being displayed, see window.innerHeight.
