Is there anyway to move background windows without bringing them to the front?

Links

  • According to this thread, using Command-ctrl allows you to move background windows without bringing them to the front. I haven't been able to replicate this on Mac OS X 10.6.2.

It's only Command (sometimes referred to as the Apple key) you need to be holding. If you hold any other modifier keys it will be as if you clicked on the window. Additionally it only works on the title bar, scroll bar and the resize corner.

Thanks for showing me the ability to insert keys. It is pretty cool. –  Casebash Dec 22 '09 at 23:25
    
Note that on Xcode this doesn't seem to work if you click on the actual title –  Casebash Dec 22 '09 at 23:41
