How do I move the Active Window using the iPad touch screen control?

You can move a window the way you move it with real mouse on the PC, i.e. you put the mouse pointer on the window title bar then hold down left button and move the pointer where you want the window to move.

So the only question is how to hold down left mouse button with PC2ME (assuming you have positioned the pointer on the window title, as you would do with regular mouse).

To hold left button down, you simply make a quick, short left swipe (i.e. left nudge) of the pointer.

That will put the pointer into "left button down" state (shown as arrow pointing south-west). Then you simply slide the finger near the south-west pointer and that will move it around following the finger, while the "left button" remains down. That in turn moves the window on the PC, just as it does with regular mouse. After the window is at the right place, you lift the left button (i.e. return to normal/hovering mouse pointer), by tapping the pointer (or nudge it left again, any of these will return it back to normal). It's best to do this first time while in front of the PC so you can watch the actions directly (and undo any mistakes).

An alternative way to hold down or lift the left mouse button is the Cut & Paste toolbar that has a toolbar button for that purpose (see the App Help about menus, or see Cut & Paste). The swipe gesture, although longer to explain, is a much quicker way to do this in practice, though.

Note that for right click, you nudge pointer to the right (that doesn't hold the right button down; we don't have a gesture to hold right button down).
