GeneralWin10 UI : The NavBar Grab Problem Pin

So, Win10 has made the Title bar of every window extremely small -- they've collapsed it and added the toolbar (icons) directly to the nav bar.

Now, I often have trouble even finding a place that will accept a "grab" when I need to drag and drop the window somewhere else.

For example, in MS Word you can only grab the nav bar in the middle of the window.
Shown here between the two "off limits" red boxes : https://i.stack.imgur.com/LspUm.png[^]

Small Space To Grab Window
That means if you need to grab your window from the left or the right side -- because other windows are obscuring it -- you cannot. Instead you have to make sure you can see the middle of the window and grab it there.

Other Apps - Different Locations
However, in other apps, the only place you can grab are small places at the edges.
In FireFox for example, you can only grab the nav bar in the two small locations shown in this image:

No Consistency
So, as windows overlap each other there is no consistent place to grab a window to move it.

It's quite annoying and a waste of time.
