Windows 7 shortcut keys – Something small, simple but ooooh so useful

10 Sep

Apologies if you already knew this (damn you for not telling me) or if you simply don’t care.

Are you getting sick of constantly switching applications from one monitor to another manually, constantly minimizing, dragging and dropping, then maximising again (eg: browser windows, pvcs, etc)?  I know I am, and I am sick of it!!!

So I went looking for one of those multi-monitor apps they had on Win XP (most of which you had to pay for) and found that Windows 7 has it built in (who woulda thunk?).  Win+Shift+Left or Right will move the current window from one monitor to the other.  <sigh> So good.

Note: this is for Win7 and Win2K8 only (as far as I know)

Here’s a complete list of short-cut keys that may make your life easier:
