Hi, try this

var
  p : TPoint;
  hWord, Pid1, Pid2 : THandle;
  WordTitle : String;
begin
  WordTitle := 'Document1 - Microsoft Word';
  hWord := FindWindow(nil, PChar(WordTitle));
  if (hWord = 0) or (hWord <>  GetForegroundWindow) then Exit;
  Pid1 := GetWindowThreadProcessId(hWord, nil);
  Pid2 := GetCurrentThreadId;
  AttachThreadInput(Pid1, Pid2, True);
  if GetCaretPos(p) then
    if Windows.ClientToScreen(hWord, p) then
      MoveWindow(Handle, p.X, p.Y, Width, Height, True);
end;
