Opera 36 needs space on title bar to grab the window

  • After the recent upgrade, there is no space at all in the title bar of the window to grab it. It is important to be able to grab the window in its maximized state when working on multiple monitors to move the window to another screen quickly.
    In the previous release, there was a little space below the slimmer "Menu" button so it was fine.
    In the latest release, to move the window to another screen, i have to first Restore the window (as opposed to Maximize it) to have space to grab it by the title bar, then move it to another screen and then maximize it there again.

    Please make some space somewhere in the title bar / tab bar / near the menu to be able to grab the window in its maximized state in the future releases.

  • If you have "Show advanced settings" checked in the Browser settings, you should have an option in the User Interface settings to "Disable tab bar's top spacing when browser window is maximised." Try unchecking that and see if that gives you back something to grab at the very top of the screen.
    You should be able to grab it even as it is now by clicking between the tab menu and minimise icons on the right hand side, but I appreciate that's not very quick and easy!
