    Window sizing area


    When resizing a window on a 15" 1920x1080 display, it takes a lot of doing because the area allowed for the cursor to change to the double ended arrow is so small, is there a way to increase the number of pixels?

    I just got used to grabbing the title bar and slamming the window to one side or straight up to the top...

    Not the target area, but you can make the pointer more visible, that may help. Go to Settings > Personalisation > Themes. Click on 'Mouse cursor'. You should be able to choose from a range of pointers, probably 'Windows Default (extra-large) (system scheme)' would suit you best.

    Tried resizing from the keyboard? Press Alt+Space to get the menu, then press S for Size. Then use the arrow keys to select which edge or corner to move, you can press left arrow then down arrow to select the lower left corner, for example.Then keep pressing the arrow keys to move the edge/corner to where you want. Press Enter when the window is the size you'd like.

    Actually, once you have selected your desired edge/corner from the keyboard your cursor is positioned correctly. You can now drag it with the mouse if you like.
