Moving and resizing windows still requires a surprising amount of precision from the user, because they must select either the top bar or thin borders of a window to interact with it.

We present two new gestures for the Microsoft Touch Mouse to move and resize windows by clicking anywhere in the window area.

To move a window, do a three finger click and drag.

To resize a window, click with one finger, and swipe a second finger in any of four directions.

Moving and resizing windows is one of the most common interactions in a desktop environment. By using the touch mouse, we can make these tasks easier.
