On Solaris you can change the size of a window from the left or right side. I am back to using Mac OS X but it is driving me nuts how you can only change the size of the window from the right side. Is there a way to change this? Did some searching but I just got "windows stuff".

Running Mac OS X 10.4.11.

Since there no window borders, this isn't an option.

There are ways of programmatically resizing windows with applescript. Or perhaps it bothers you enough that this little utility might be of use:

I've never tried it, but it looks to do what you want.

Since you're still using 10.4 there's a slim chance that there may be a ShapeShifter theme that draws window borders with handles, but the OS doesn't do it on its own.
