Bad UIX Design

Microsoft (and pretty much most of the industry) have decided that it is a good thing to save on screen real estate when designing applications. In specific, you will notice that on a Mac, the URL bar for web browsers, and their buttons, are now in the title bar space. Nice - we saved 30 pixels of previously unused space.

Same with many other applications, and now - with Office 2016 for Mac. Only problem is... There used to be a very good reason WHY we had the title bar of a window. To grab it with the mouse to drag the window around. I know we can drag windows in Mac using the footer too, but that is just weird.

So how am I to quickly grab this stupid window with EVERYTHING in the title bar?
