I have found a few methods to solve this.
First, right clicking the title bar gives you a menu with re-size in it. Then whichever corner your pointer is closest to becomes a re-size handle which you then left click to end. This method only lets you be closest to the upper left and right corners however.
So... if you instead, use alt and a right click in the window, again you get a menu, but this way you can begin in the lower left or lower right of the window and then whichever you were closest to becomes the re-size handle. Then you re-size until satisfied, and then left click to release and keep the new size.
And lastly, since this menu show that alt-F8 is a shortcut, place the mouse pointer in the window closest to the corner you wish to re-size from and type alt-F8. When you release the keys, the mouse pointer will attach to the corner and you can re-size. Again, left click to end.
