Sometimes, I open an application and it opens a window that is too tall for my display. It also doesn't let me resize the window to make it less tall, and it doesn't have a maximize button. In Ubuntu (GNOME Shell), I can drag and drop the title bar to move the window, but I can't move the window higher than the top edge of the screen, which would have been useful to see the lower part of the window.
How do I find a workaround for windows that are too tall to fit in the display? Is there a way to force resize the window? Is there a way to move the window higher than the top edge of the monitor?
(An example of this issue: in VirtualBox, click File -> Import Appliance... The resulting window is too tall on some screen resolutions.)
I am interested in answers in GNOME Shell, as well as other environments.
