Issue Report: Steam windows' interesting resizing & suggestions
Hi!

My very first attempt was trying to resize Steam's windows.
And I got interesting results: they could be resized, over sized, undersized. Even those windows which should not be resize able.

Use ALT + middle click to resize a window.
Use ALT + left click to drag around.

Suggestions:
  • align windows' elements/contents to a corresponding direction (example: buttons to the bottom right corner; Steam logo to the middle top; etc)
  • windows should get a minimum fix size, below which can not be resized/undersized (there is a lot example in the GTK or QT, I think)
  • Run. *backstab* Go away Spy.
  • windows could be managed like the other windows: rolling up; pushing to the back with middle click; tiling

Same here - with low width, user is not able to resize back by pulling right side - he has to move window to right and resize afterwards.

It is too easy to acceidentally maximize a non-resizable window (in KDE, by dragging the titlebar to the top of the screen or by maximizing a grouped Taskbar icon). If you don't realize what happened, it may be tricky to get the window (such as Settings) back to a reasonable size.

According to http://standards.freedesktop.org/wm-spec/wm-spec-latest.html#id2578388 a window manager should recognize a window as non-resizable if its minimum and maximum sizes are identical. The Settings window's minimum size is 128x66 (way too small) and it does not have a maximum size.
