It's been mentioned here that this bug is fixed in Octave 6, so closing as fixed. If someone can show that this is still present in Octave 6, please reopen with some details about how to reproduce.

comment #1:

What was not displayed at startup. As I already mentioned, "Alt+Space" did not work.

However, when I re-scaled the window using the lower right corner, the window became movable and started without problems at the new position after closing.

So the problem is solved for my production system but this behaviour is somewhat irritating for a fresh installation.

This might be fixed by changeset http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/96d87e7093d0?revcount=40 which will be in the upcoming new release 6.1.0. However, the window should be movable by the "Alt+Space" menu.

The GUR of a freshly installed Octave 5.1.0 on Windows 10 cannot be moved by the mouse. System is Windows 10 Pro Version 1809 on a computer with 32 GB RAM and two monitors attached.

Alt + Space activated the context menu, however, the window was still frozen at the upper left corner.
