Windows 7: Can't move window

Can't move window

I don't know if this is the best place to ask this question but if not let me know.
I have a game that I'm playing or want to play I should say, and it must be windowed in 7 Ultimate, can't play full screen cause it's an old game, anyway, once the game starts the mouse is captured by the game and I have no way of moving the window. Is there a way to move this window to get it where it should be? When I first started , I had the ability to move the window, which I centered, but now since I've increased the size of the window it has extended itself to the bottom of the screen and cuts off part of the window.

This is a long shot but maybe it works.

Try CTL+ALT to get control of the cursor so that you can move the window. Then click in the middle of the game window which should give the cursor control back to the game.

Hello xpac5896, if what whs mentioned does not work, try "ALT+Enter". It should automatically go to windowed mode for you.
