Move-border provides functions for resizing Emacs windows, considering the current window border instead of the window itself.

So, by binding your keys to move-border-up, move-border-down, move-border-left, and move-border-right, you can resize your windows much more intuitively than if you were using shrink-window, enlarge-window, shrink-window-horizontally and enlarge-window-horizontally.

;; example key bindings
(global-set-key (kbd "M-S-<up>") 'move-border-up)
(global-set-key (kbd "M-S-<down>") 'move-border-down)
(global-set-key (kbd "M-S-<left>") 'move-border-left)
(global-set-key (kbd "M-S-<right>") 'move-border-right)
