AltDrag is a free software to change position of any opened window and resize any window using hotkey and mouse. Normally, we need to press and hold mouse cursor on the title bar of a window to move it and use edges of a window to resize it. This software helps to skip this hassle. You can place mouse cursor anywhere on an opened window and use the hotkey and left and right mouse buttons to resize and adjust position of that particular window.

By default, you can use Alt key and left and right mouse buttons to move and resize a window. You can also change hotkey to Windows key or Ctrl key to resize and move a window using mouse buttons. In the recording below, you can see that my mouse cursor is not on the title bar or edge of the window, still I am able to move and resize it. All of it is made possible using this software.
