Move the Spotlight Window

OS X El Capitan allows you to move the Spotlight window, unlike Yosemite which kept it locked in the center of the screen. Use Command+space to bring up spotlight. Then You can drag the very top of the window, or the Spotlight icon at the top left corner to move the window. This is handy for getting it out of the way when you are trying to refer to something else on the screen. You can also drag the top or bottom of the window to make it larger or smaller.

      Check System Preferences, Keyboard, Shortcuts and then Spotlight on the left. The default is Command+Space. But you can change it to something else, so perhaps you did that or perhaps some software you installed did it.
