In GNOME, how to move and resize window using one hotkey like Xfce (Alt) or elementary OS (Super)?

In Xfce, we can hold the Alt key, and use the left mouse button to move the window, or use the right mouse button to resize the window. Similarly, in elementary OS there is the Super key, but in GNOME, how do you set the Super key to drag or resize window?


Run GNOME Tweaks, go to the Windows section, and choose your favourite action key next to the Window Action Key entry:

The Windows section of GNOME Tweaks

Pressing the action key will allow you to move windows (using the main mouse button) and resize them (using the middle mouse button).
