how to augment the sensitivity of window borders for resizing?

For resizing windows, I have to put my mouse exactly on the window border, and it is sometimes hard.

I would like it to be easier, which means that the area for which the mouse is considered on the border should be be bigger.

How to do this? How to augment the sensitivity of window borders for resizing windows?

That width is determined by the theme you use. Our users complained about the narrowness of greybird during development, so we modified the greybird theme to widen it.

An easy keyboard method is to type Alt-F8, which jumps the cursor to the lower right corner of the active window, if not maximized, ready to resize.

You can also use alt + right click and drag the window to the size you want.

Is there a way to customize my current theme?
