have you connected two monitors to your PC, the quick placement of programs on the one or the other screen is very convenient.

so you have a have a program monitor, make

  1. the program by clicking on or via [Alt + Tab] in the foreground.
  2. press [Umschalten] + [Windows] + [Pfeil links] to represent the current application on the left monitor.
  3. vice versa it is analog: press [Umschalten] + [Windows] + [Pfeil rechts] for the right monitor.

the system works also with multiple screens. While the above shortcuts move the current program one step further to the right or left.

of course it also works with the mouse which you ship the application to a different location by dragging the title bar. The keyboard shortcuts are but practical. Because if ran the program on a screen in full-screen mode, its window on the newly allocated monitor is represented once again in full size – also, if for other pixel dimensions. With the mouse, however, must turn again until the window in full-screen mode.

Windows 8: to switch using the keyboard the screen

press [Windows] + [Bild oben] to the current app on the left monitor to slide and [Windows] + [Bild unten] to push it to the right.
