A useful hint is also that often on a netbook I find that Alt-left
button/hold then use the touchpad to slide will move a window up
beyond the top of the desktop limit. Or Alt-Left button/hold on an
attached mouse and drag up achieves the same - and you can then access
the bottom of the popup window for the dialog which includes access to
the button to close the dialog.
