Move a PiP Video Player Window Anywhere on Mac

Many of you may use the excellent Picture-in-Picture mode on the Mac to watch a video or movie while doing something else on the computer. In doing so you have likely noticed that the Picture-in-Picture (PiP) windows snap into one of the four corners of the Mac display.
Move the PiP window anywhere on Mac

But what if you want to move your Picture-in-Picture window somewhere else on the Mac screen?

You can do that by holding down a keyboard key while attempting to move the window around.

To locate the PiP window anywhere on the Mac display, simply hold down the Command key while dragging the Picture-in-Picture video player window elsewhere on the screen.

As long as you are holding the Command key you can locate the PiP video window anywhere.

To try this out yourself, open a Picture-in-Picture video playing as usual and then hold down the Command key as you drag and locate the PiP window where ever you’d like it to be.

This should come in handy anytime you’re watching a PiP video on the Mac but the video player is blocking an interface component or some important data on the screen
