xfwm border

Other than increasing the border size, is there any way to increase window border drag/resize grips?

Re: xfwm border

Just use alt+ right click to drag and resize.

Thanks, I do know about that workaround. I was wondering about other options.

Here's a good thread about that, from 2015: https://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?id=6113

Personally, I have much more luck resizing from the top right or top left of the window. There seems to be more of a grip there (or at least there is with the Greybird theme).

Thanks all. Working on modifying themes to increase border size, seems to be best option. Thanks again

Re: xfwm border

Way too blue for me smile but well done.

I prefer dark themes and am using https://www.xfce-look.org/p/1013615/ which says it is for GTK 3.18 but is working fine on GTK 3.22. I find resizing works well with it but that wasn't an issue for me as I'm happy to use the keyboard shortcut.

Re: xfwm border

It inherits the gtk color scheme. It's not always blue
