    Moving a browser window UP!


    Moving a browser window UP!-move_window_up.png

    I do not want the window to snap to the top edge of the screen.

    Sites like ESPN and NFL have a scroll of live scores at the top of the page along with banners, etc.

    I'd like to move these out of site.

    Is it possible to move a browser window (or any window for that matter) UP and partially out of site as in the posted image?

    Maybe there's a utility that attaches a 'mover' to the browser window which would enable me to FORCE the window up and out of site... as in the picture.

    It's amazing how many people do NOT understand what I'm trying to explain here, even with the help of pictures!
    Hopefully someone here will have an answer...


    Thanks in advance!

    This is in fact quite easy, you can move any window including browsers partially, even completely outside the display. Notice that this does not work on full screen window.

    Exit full screen, make your browser window as big as you want but not full screen. Press ALT + SPACE to open small context menu top left. Select Move, press UP ARROW to move the upper part of browser window "out of sight". Press ENTER to lock new position.

    Wow... yet another person who didn't read the question or look at the picture. Well done, you!

    "I do not want the window to snap to the top edge of the screen."

    Have you actually tried this yourself? Would love to see a screen shot of how that worked out for you as this method simply pins the top of the browser to the top of the screen which is something I clearly stated in the first line of the post is something that I did NOT want to do.

    Does anyone have an answer?

    Here are two images... In image one, no matter what you do, you can't move the top of the browser window out of site above the top of the monitor.
    In the second image is what I would like to do... essentially dragging or moving a browser window out of view to the top of the screen.

    Does anyone understand what I'm trying to do? If you don't, please resist the temptation to answer.

    Please resist the temptation to reply this, your extreme arrogance just put you on my ignore list.

    These control all windows not only browsers which are just another window as far as Windows are concerned:

    Thanks for that idea.

    I gave it a shot and switched off the Snap feature in Multitasking.
    Unfortunately I still can't do what I want to.

    Moving the window UP and out of view just makes the browser window smaller in height!

    I've been looking for an answer for this for so long that I'm now sure that there isn't one.
    Moving a window around the monitor works anyway but up and out of sight of the top of the monitor.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Well. no window is going to get longer just because part of it is off screen, did you try to grub bottom part and stretch it downwards. That's another move but I can't think of anything else.
    There are some monitors that can be turned to portrait mode, used quite a bit in desktop publishing.

    Yes, and you can stretch the window longer... unfortunately, though, my irritation still remains... I can't hide the top portion of the window.

    Cheers.
