From keyboard shortcut to desktop icon.

One keyboard shortcut is.... Win key + shift + arrow left . Does anyone know how to take this function and create a desktop icon to do the same thing? THANKS for any help. Undine.

Win+Shift+Left(Right) moves ACTIVE (focused) window to second monitor, doesn't it?
While clicking on desktop icon your pointer automatically focus on that icon, and your window loses focus, so trick won't work.

By you can try this software, it was made for multiple monitor management
(it has quick window moving function even in Free version).
