Drag Windows Without Making Them Active

To move a window on the Mac you can click and drag its title bar. But that also brings the window to the front and makes it active. You can move a window without making it active, without even brining it to the front, by holding the Command key to drag it. You can even drag edges and corners to resize the window with the Command key down.

    This only works when I use a mouse and not with my keypad on my laptop. Can you help me with this.

    It should work on a MacBook. You have to click down and drag as normal, just use the Command key at the same time.
