There are some shortcuts that might help to mitigate those windows

1- (Window menu): With the window activated, press *Alt + Space bar*
Once you get here, you might be able to see some options, one of them is*
move*. Use arrow keys to get where you need. When selecting *move*, you can
move the window to desired position, then press *Enter *to end this

2- (Move): After opening window menu, you can access *move* function
directly by pressing *Space bar + M*

3- (Resize): After opening windows menu, you can access* resize* function
pressing *Space bar + S* After this, left click (and hold) with mouse and
move cursor to desired size...

Hope that helps...
