Moving a Window
Every software program you launch (as explained later in this chapter in the task “Opening a Program”) is displayed in a separate onscreen window. To move a window, click the window's title bar and drag the window anywhere on the desktop. When you release the mouse button, the window stays where you put it.
- Position the cursor over the window's title bar.
- Click and hold the left mouse button.
- Drag the title bar to move the window to a new position and drop it by releasing the mouse button.
