    • bounds (Object) - Window position and size (macOS only)
      • x (number)
      • y (number)
      • width (number)
      • height (number)
    • owner (Object) - App that owns the window

    OS support

    It works on macOS, Linux, and Windows 7+.

    Note: On Windows, there isn't a clear notion of a "Window ID". Instead it returns the memory address of the window "handle" in the id property. That "handle" is unique per window, so it can be used to identify them. Read more….
