Tame your computer - double vision

Roem Tip Time logo

In her regular series for Cambridge Network members, software training expert Karen Roem offers handy tips to help you 'Tame your computer'. This week she explains how to quickly move a window from one monitor to another (Microsoft Windows)...

As a training consultant I end up working in lots of different offices, with lots of different set-ups. At one of my clients’ offices I was recently moved to a desk with two computer monitors. So there I was, finally able to move windows from one screen to the other. But as my favourite keyboard shortcuts to arrange windows side-by-side suddenly didn’t make sense anymore, I wasn’t enjoying it as much as I would have expected … pressing the Windows key and the left or right arrows only nudged the active window to the edge of the monitor and I had to press the keyboard combination again to move it to the other.

So I was pretty chuffed when I found out there is a keyboard shortcut that moves a window from one monitor to another.

Here’s how:

  1.  WIN + SHIFT + left arrow
  2.  WIN + SHIFT + right arrow

Happiness is.
