Windows 7: RDP Monitor - Move app to other monitor

RDP Monitor - Move app to other monitor

Nvidia had an application called "Nview" that has been discontinued. It basically had a right click feature to allow you to move the app to the other monitor.

Does windows 7 have this feature? Is there an app that I could use to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance...

You just drag the open screen across I think.

Ultramon does that:

Hello Drew, and welcome to Seven Forums.

In addition, you can use these keyboard shortcuts below to move a active window over to the monitor to the left.

Windows Key + Shift+ Left Arrow

thanks for all the great replies.

My issue is when I RDP to a machine with two monitors I can not move a window from the 2nd screen to the 1st. Seems that the windows commands are not working. I will keep testing.

Sadly I cant select the 2nd screen to view and programs like logmein are blocked. I will possibly try the ultramod program. Sounds like that maybe the solution.

Thanks again!
