Re: Debian on EEE -- really nice, but how can I resize windows which already seem to be at their minimal size?

I think we may be talking about different things, and misunderstanding
each other. I was meaning to talk about moving the position of a window
on the screen, not changing it's size.

If the buttons in a window are below  the bottom of the screen, I move
the whole window up so the buttons are visible. This will cause the top
part of a window to no longer be visible, as it is now off the top of
the screen, but I can click on buttons I need to.
