Window Resizer


Alright, I just recently reinstalled Linux Mint Mate on my desktop because my hard drive failed. I also use windows 7 on occasion. Windows and Gnome 3 have a window resizer where you can move a window to the left right top whatever and it will resize it automatically. Is there something I can use to do that without using gnome 3 with the shell or windows? Edit: It might have been Unity *Vomits* that had the auto resizing Im not quite sure.

Are you referring to that thing in Windows which, when the window touches to the top of the screen, it maximizes?

I have Mint 13 with MATE and there is no such feature that I've observed and I was unable to find a setting for that behavior in the Control Center.

Yes that is exactly what Im referring too, haven't been able to find any? That sucks, Ill prolly keep looking and see if one pops up. If there isn't one though its not a big deal would just be a nice option to have. Also in windows its not just the top of the screen if you move the window to the left and right of the screen it will only maximize the window for half the screen. Does the same with gnome 3 shell too. Sadly I dislike gnome 3 shell, More of a gnome 2 or XFCE4 person myself.

Perhaps there is an outside effects program that can do that though? I seem to recall something like that in Compiz though its been awhile since Ive used it as a composite manager.
