How can I enable the resize of my terminal by dragging in the general corner area.

Asked by Rick T on 2020-10-13

How can I enable the resize of my terminal by dragging in the general corner area.
Note: I can resize it by dragging the corners but I would like to resize it by just dragging in the general area

Here's a video link of what I'm referring to. I'm using Ubuntu 20.04.1

Press Alt+F8 to corner resize- left click when done. Hold down Alt + left click anywhere to move Terminal window where needed. Or just left- click on top bar of terminal window to move.

Can you help with this problem?
