Windows 7: Move Window

Move Window

Right now I can move a window by clicking only along the top of the window border. Is it possible to move windows by clicking anywhere on it without 3rd party software?

With WIN+left arrow and WIN+right arrow you can move it to the left or right half of the screen. But that gives you only half a screen.

1. Make sure the window has focus (i.e. it's the active window).

2. Next, press Alt+Space and then press the letter M.

3. Now, use your arrow keys to move the window back to where you want it.

I canít see the top of a window, so I canít minimize, maximize, or close. What can I do? Ė Ask Leo!

Thank you C-11 for your reply. For me, it is a most welcome secondary solution as well as informative. I was not aware of those key-combos. Well done!
