Hi!
My first post here. :-)
I have huge difficulty grabbing the window's edge with the mouse cursor, when I want to resize it. The margin for this is very narrow. In other distros (or OS) there is no problem with that.
Is there any way to change it?
Thanks!

Apologies for starting a new thread.  If a thread subject contains some punctuation it cannot be opened properly due to a temporary issue on the forum.


Your difficulty could be related to the desktop theme you are using.  Different themes have different window frame width.  The LL default is Adapta which is quite narrow.

Go to Menu -> Settings - Window Manager

Under the 'style' tab make a note of your current theme, then select others in turn.  This should dynamically alter the desktop so if you have a sample window open on the desktop you can see if the frame width becomes easier to select.   'Default-xhdpi' might be one to try.  If you can't find an installed theme to suit, you can import others.

Just another suggestion: If you right click the top left of the window (above the File menu item), you will find Resize. It's not the smoothest operation, but it can do what you want. Might take some experimentation to learn to control. I learned to do this when a game window got huge, which I didn't want.
