As mentioned already openbox (the default desktop for the Pi) does the usual 
thing and Alt-drag anywhere on the window should move it where you want.

If you are using linux (or Apple) I find connecting to the Pi with ethernet and:

   ssh -X pi at
replacing the IP with the actual one of course, it is usually announced on the 
console at the end of the boot process, then set your laptop ethernet to a 
compatible manual IP you are set to go.

is a very comfortable way to work, the pd windows are then on my laptop and the 
Pi does not need to run a desktop at all.

  pcmanfm &

should get you a file browser window, so you can navigate and open things in the 
familiar GUI way, if that is what you prefer.
