Windows 7: Keyboard Shortcut to Move Window

Keyboard Shortcut to Move Window

Hi There!

I would love it, if I could assign a button to my keyboard that would take the currently highlighted window, and move to it screen 1, 2 or 3 in it's exact current size and position.. Anyone know if that is possible? I know you can move them 1 screen at a time, but I'd like to be able to just hit a single key or shortcut.

Hello Networkn,

You can use these shortcut keys:

Windows Key + Shift + Left Arrow = Moves the current active window over one monitor to the left.

Windows Key + Shift + Right Arrow = Moves the current active window over one monitor to the right.

Hope this helps,

That doesn't do quite what I want.

I want like a Windows Shift 1, 2, 3 to move the Window to the appropriate monitor.
