all the proposed answers using Alt key work, but are temporarily! is there a permanent solution? i have some windows that open for some reason in this position. it seems Ubuntu isn't remembering the new position. – TD_Nijboer Apr 28 '14 at 13:27

Hold down the left Alt key and left click and drag the window to a new position. You should be able to move the window to another location.

You could switch the position of the Ubuntu Panel to the left, right, or bottom of the screen temporarily until you can move the window to a safe position, then move the panel back to it's default area (or area or preference)

A simpler way is to spread the workspaces using Super + S or the workspace icon in the launcher (if enabled), then just drag the window away from the panel.

no expert but you should be able to grab the grey Ubuntu bar and just pull it down again. or you could just close the window and reopen it.
