[SOLVED] Increase Window Border Widths?
« on: June 30, 2016, 10:17:12 am »
Is it possible to increase the width of the thin window borders? My old eyes and hands have trouble grabbing them.

Not easily .. at least not a way that doesn't come with problems of it's own

There are however shortcuts that allow you to resize windows

Hit Alt+F8 .. then just move your mouse to resize the window, click to let go.

Or you can click the little icon top left of any window and select "Resize"

Or you can hit Alt+Space followed by the R key

Or if using a mouse, hold Alt and middle-click

I generally avoid shortcuts, because there are so many of them to remember. But thanks for providing them!

Hi
The last one should be hold alt+right mouse click near the edge you want to move/resize
