Use your mouse to resize emacs widows

October 10, 2010 at 4:51 am Leave a comment

It’s easy to split emacs windows with binding keys, C-x 2 and C-x 3,
for horizontally and vertically, respectively. But resizing it with C-u xx C-x C-}, or C-x C-^, or C-x C-v is somewhat
cumbersome. Fortunately, mouse can do this for us.

  1. Resize horizontally: move mouse cursor to those dash line in
    mode-line, and then just drag it.

  2. Resize vertically: move mouse cursor to the area just under the
    split line, in the mode-line. When it shows double horizontal arrow,
    drag it.

  3. Split vertically: move to mode-line, and C-mouse-midle-key.

  4. close window: right click mouse on the mode-line.

Is it nicer? Enjoy it.
