   window.resizeTo( 800, 600 );
changes the size of the window to 800*600

Incidentally that is totally useless information. You may have your ideas about what size browserwindow your page should be shown in. but the browser belong to the person looking ay your page. all you accomplish by changing the size he has set his browser to is to irritate him so he goes somewhere else. Instead you should make yor page so it adjust to the size of window it is given.

I agree with JakobA.  You want to be careful about overriding user preferences; it can create difficulties for users who need specific settings because of visual disabilities.
