    Red face Default Key Combination for 'Window Resize Grippers' ???

    Hi
    In recently upgraded from Ubuntu 11.04 to 11.10 through update manager and still discovering it's features and things.

    I accidentally hit some key combinations and I was given this 'Window Resize Grippers' on an active application window.

    I haven't installed any software to tweak the Ubuntu environment. It's just a standard upgrade.

    I just dont know how 'Window Resize Grippers' popped up in the first place . Seems like a good option to me, so It would be helpful if any one can tell me how to bring about the 'Window Resize Grippers' whenever I want it . What is the default key combination?

    I Google for the information and most of them talks about disabling it. A few of the articles I read asks me to install some software to enable it and add key combinations.
    But, I suppose it's enabled by default, why else I was able to get it in the first place.

    Just to have a visual clue of what I am talking about I am attaching a relevant image from Google search results.

    Thanks in advance.

    By default, for me grab handles is disabled.(12.04 and 12.10)
    To see what yours is configured to, install ccsm.
    In terminal...
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
    To run, enter ccsm in the dash.
    The plugin is at the bottom....Unity MT Grab Handles

    Is it not possible without installing the CCSM? I read reviews about installing CCSM in UBUNTU 11.10 and found that most users who installed CCSM in 11.10 didn't have a pleasant experience.
    Is there a work around?

    Don't have 11.10 installed and things have changed.
    Look in gconf-editor under /apps/compiz or apps/compiz-1
    May have to install gconf-editor.
