In this way, how do you measure screen size?

It is critical that you measure your monitor screen correctly to ensure proper fit of your computer filter. To determine filter size, measure diagonally from one corner to the opposite diagonal corner. Be sure to measure only the viewable screen area. Do not include the dimensions of the screen's frame or casing.

Does window size include frame?

Just remember that vinyl or aluminum window measurements include the entire unit -- glass, frame and sash -- while wood window sizes go by the measure of the glass. You'll have more visible glass in a three-foot wood window than a three-foot vinyl window, but you'll also have a larger window unit in wood.
