    I'm looking for a way to be able to resize a window from any side. I watch some TV on my laptop, and I want to be able to shrink the window down to JUST the video so I can save screen space for work.

    I know there was a way to do this in 10.4, but I haven't found a way in 10.5

    Look up Zooom2 (yes, three o's)

    There's a way to set it so that when you hold a modifier key (option, for instance) the entire top-left block of the window lets you resize it from the top left, bottom-left the bottom-left, etc.

    I haven't used it for awhile, but I do remember that feature.

    What are you using to watch tv? Is this a HD feed?

    Thanks XnavxeMiyyep, that helps some! I was looking for it to also be used on something like ESPN360, but I just tried it real quick on Windows, and it looks like they have the video a set distance from the side, so it's something that's not a mac thing in particular.

    But that helps a lot! thanks!
