Ubuntu – How to increase the resize margin on windows


It takes me about 5 tries to resize a window on my computer.

Is there a way to increase the resize margin on the edge of windows?

  • As others have mentioned, it depends on the theme. Try a few out. What I frequently do instead is hold down Alt and middle-click (right-click in some environments) and drag to resize, which works anywhere on the window.

    Note that many themes that seem to have a 1px border (or no border at all) actually do tend to have a generous invisible border just outside the window. You usually don't have to pinpoint a tiny window border to resize.
