For sure. I knew this, but, if the windows is too big (because of the
text it contains), moving it this way (or with other shortcuts) only
causes it to move horizontally, and not vertically(!)

All my tasksbars are also masked, to have more free space on my
screen, but it does not prevent these buttons from being sometimes
``too lowly'' or ``too highly'' placed on the screen.

This problem is only illustrated when I am facing a long window (it
happens unfortunately more often than you may imagine). In this case,
even a printscreen does not give me the buttons (eh, I tried making a
printscreen of the window, opening the image, and scrolling down, to
see the buttons, but the printscreen's image stops where the window
stops on my screen, unfortunately).
