When using unity, all you need to do is click and drag down from the top panel to grab a window to move it. I have found that alt button1 is a good option for the move plugin that works.

Here are the steps I used to get the multi-monitor control login-screen fully working -- even though it's not working with ...

This worked for me but in reverse. I uninstalled the global menu components via sudo apt-get remove indicator-appmenu. I then had the problem described above when my windows where in full screen mode. By checking "Displayed in the menu bar" and "Displayed on mouse hovering" in "System settings -> Appearance -> Behavior" my tile bar information is now ...
