It appears that Ubuntu 18.04 uses the windows key to trigger window dragging and window resizing using the mouse.

I want to use Super+'Right Mouse Button' to resize a window, instead of the default Super+'Middle Click'.

How do I change this configuration? It would be even better if I could go back to Alt+'Right Mouse Button' instead of using windows key.


Open dconf-editor, if not yet installed..install it by below command

sudo apt update && sudo apt install dconf-editor

Search for "mouse-button-modifier" and change value to <Alt>

now search for "right-button" and make it to true.
