Usability - misguided practice with mouse cursor icon

Post by subverso » Tue Dec 04, 2012 7:09 pm



Just make some contribuition to the developers and UX and usability designers.

The problem I mentioned in this post refers an error of the mouse icon when it is in the right-lower corner. It leads the user to think that stage of the mouse will resize the window. But not, it does nothing and deselect the actual window the user is handle.

Some sugestion: disable this cursor icon (vertical and horizontal resizable)


Change the right-lower corner of the windows to something like this (this pattern is more acquainted to mac users when they want to resize an window):


Hope it would help in some way.
C ya!!! Peace! :mrgreen:
