Fluxbox window resizing


I'm using Fluxbox and really like it, although my one beef is when I want to resize a window (in any app) I have to go down to the bottom on either the right or left side and grab about a quarter inch area.

I used to use Gnome and I could grab any corner or side of a window to resize it. Anyone know how to do this in Fluxbox?

Thanks.

You can try Alt+drag with the right mouse button.

I am really hopeful about getting fluxbox but then I though does fluxbox had a browser not Internet browser but browser for files like when you click on home and you have all the directories /home /usr /opt so on

Fluxbox doesn't have its own browser. A window manager typically does windows and menus and that's about it (as opposed to a desktop environment such as KDE, which includes several other tools).
This won't stop you from accessing your files, of course, using whichever file manager you prefer.

Exactly, if you want to use Konqueror from KDE, you can. I use Fluxbox as my only WM, and I use quite a bit of the KDE tools such as Konqueror, KMail, KMix, KMail, KWrite, Kate and such. I think KDE's programs are great, but their environment is really, REALLY slow and too complicated. Fluxbox is completely customizeable, which is why I like it so much. I have quite a few keyboard shortcuts that I use for my functionality probably more often than I use the mouse.
