Moving a window using the title bar

Sometimes a window may obscure an item you want to click on or view.

To move a window:

  1. Place the mouse pointer over the title bar (located at the top of the window).
  2. Click and hold down the left mouse button. (You cannot move a window that has been maximized other than to use the Minimize button.)
  3. Drag the window to the place where you want it, then release the mouse button.
