    Program for moving windows


    I'm looking for a program that will allow me to move windows to a specified location. This should be a command-line program that accepts a program/window name and the destination coordinates.

    Does such a thing exist?

    What specifically do you mean by "specified location"? Windows is not a single file but a collection of folders and files -- and you can't just "move" it to another folder on the same partition or on another drive.

    I think the OP wants to move a window to a specific DISPLAYED location, not a FOLDER location.
    I haven't found a program specifically for this, but AutoHotKey might be able to do this.
    The OP would need to play with it to see if it can work as needed...

    AutoHotkey: macro and automation Windows scripting language

    Here is a Google for move window to coordinates:
