    Move window above top of screen

    Is it possible to move the top of a window above the top of the screen??

    What I mean is if I hold 'alt' and the left mouse button I can move my window down below the bottom of the phisical screen limits, but is there any way to do this with the top of the screen?

    The reason I want this is becuase I am using an aspire one with a screen hight of 600 pixels, and I want to use a couple of packages that go beyond this hight.

    I dont mind if I have to install aditional apps to achieve this or if can be done with a setting for a virtual screen size, but willing to look at any possibility.

    hi, are you running compiz? If you are it is done as follows.

    Press alt-f2 and type ccsm (do you have compiz settings manager installed?) Scroll to the bottom and find the "move windows" icon and click on it. There is an option "constrain Y"; uncheck this and you can pull the windows where you want. If you are useing "advanced desktop settings" and dont have compiz-config-settings installed open a terminal and digit;


    sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager


    hope this helps
