You can't move InDesign window. Am I right?

You are talking about the application frame. 

It might help you to hold down the alt key and click on the green window button.

As a more general observation, most major apps (Adobe, MS, etc.) have cluttered up the top edge of the app frame so much it's a chore to find a clear spot to grab. It's a minor point that manages to irritate me several times a day, and each time I wish for just one clear strip we can grab easily. (The current versions of Office apps are much, much worse at this.)

 

Not sure if that addresses the OP''s issue — that there is an actual problem getting a grip even on a clear spot, or that the upper frame is so crowded it's hard to find one.
