KDE window edges - how do i grab and resize when maximized?
I love that, in KDE, i can grab the edge of a maximized window and pull it smaller. Every time I sit at a Windows box I curse this lack of simple functionality.

Now I installed Kubuntu (6.06), and my maximized windows no longer have this grabability. (kde 3.5.2)

Anyone know what I need to do to make this possible?

Don't you just hold alt or ctrl then you left click or right click?

Check your preferences to see if you disabled the "alt" button thing.

that may be... but without using the keyboard?

I want the window frames to be always a click-and-drag away from being smaller...

i would think that there is something in the KDE Control Center but I've not seen it...

It's there, at least in KDE 3.5.3.:D

YES! Thank you!

For those who cannot read the German in that screenshot and come across this post later, in my KDE3.5.2 this behavior is changed in:

System Settings/Desktop/Window Behavior/Moving tab:
[x] Allow moving and resizing of Maximized Windows

Thank youse both Chuong and spirit receiver!
