Visual Studio 2019 window resize is difficult

Chris Breemer 21 Reputation points

Hi all,
I never had this issue with previous Visual Studio versions, but as from VS2019 (Community version) I find it very hard to resize the main VS window. The border is evidently VERY small (seems like only one or two pixels), so getting the resize cursor to appear over it requires considerable dexterity and patience (neither of which I have in sufficient measure).
Would be very grateful for any ideas, as this is quite annoying.

    I've been following this thread for a while now, hoping for a solution, and I've finally found one.
    I would have commented sooner but I couldn't come up with any that wasn't just snarky and unhelpful.

    I bit the bullet and installed VS2022 (Community) and this issue has been addressed.
    (This after receiving a notification that VS 2019 was no longer supported.)

    I am able to grab and drag using all four sides and all four corners.

    The version I installed: Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2022 (64-bit) - Current Version 17.1.4

    Thank you so much for the original post.
    Thank you for the replies.
    Thank you all for getting this done.
