I have *major* problems with that! (:-/)

I drag windows by their most convenient edge all the time.  I often have
so many windows open that some of them are bound to have their tabs off-screen.
To me this is a *feature* of BeOS, not a problem!  Please don't mess.

In this area, though, there is one feature I've always thought would be
useful to add somehow: some way, probably in the Deskbar, of 'finding'
a window that you've lost -- in BeOS I could move it entirely off-screen
and not be able to retrieve it.  Not sure if this can happen in Haiku
-- not something I'd like to try deliberately! -- but just yesterday
I had trouble finding a window that somehow had been moved so only its
edge was visible.
