How can I move a dialog/window using just the keyboard?

A. Sometimes due to a video or other problem, it's useful to be able to move a dialog using the keyboard as the outsides may be off of the screen.

To move a dialog using just the keyboard:

  1. Hold down the ALT key.
  2. Press SPACEBAR.
  3. Press M (Move).
  4. A 4-headed arrow will appear. When it does, use your arrow keys to move the outline of the window.
  5. When you are happy with its position, press ENTER.
