Windows 7: How to move window off the top screen?

How to move window off the top screen?

I can't really explain it, cause my keyword lead me to Alt+Space+M.

It's different because the way it works just different.
In Ubuntu, You can Hold down ALT Button and drag a window whenever you want to go. (This kind of ability I want to talk about)

Why I am asking this? I encountered some installer like AutoCAD, even with full resolution of my laptop (1920x1080) The window still show 90% of it, which is bad because the important button are on the bottom like [Next] [Cancel] [Install] [Finish], etc. I tried to drag it to the top, but Windows 7 won't let me do that.
Also, the installation screen doesn't have ability to Maximize.

Hello ahiung, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if using the method in the tutorial below may allow you to drag the window fully back onscreen.

Hope this helps,

Can`t you just resize it manually ? Grab the edge of the window and pull it inward to make it smaller.

Thank you for this response, this answer almost had it. The problem is Windows' monitor don't allow the top part of the window goes off top of our monitor. Even if we managed to get it off top, it's just temporary. The effect wear off after you move your mouse or key in something.

Btw, this post's problem will remain unsolved. However, I managed to solve my Installation problem in different way. I change the screen orientation from "Landscape" to "Portrait". Now the Horizontal become long vertical, and Vertical become narrow horizontal. And, temporarily bend my head.
