In gnome shell, when I hit the SUPER+LEFT keys, the active window is moved and resized to fit in the left exact half part of the screen

I'd like SUPER-LEFT to take 3/4th of the screen instead.

I think I could do that with a shell extension but I'm wondering if there's a simpler more native way to achive that.

Associating that to a new keys combination would also be a suitable solution.

There's a shell extension doing what I want : extensions.gnome.org/extension/39/put-windows –  sylvain Feb 21 '13 at 17:43
