setWindowSize (width X height) - Selenium IDE command

Use setWindowSize to resize the browser window to emulate various screen resolutions. This command re-sizes the browser's window in order to emulate various resolutions. It is particularly useful for web designers and developers by helping them test their layouts on different browser resolutions. You can set the window's width/height. The new dimensions always apply to the viewport (not the entire window).

In other words, the command does exactly the same as, for example, the Windows Resizer or Browser Resize browser extensions for Chrome an Firefox do manually. But UI.Vision RPA does it as part of an automation or test sequence. This is especially useful when doing visual UI testing with responsive web pages.
