Windows 7: Dual screen keyboard acrobatics

keyboardI have become a huge fan of keyboard shortcuts as they seem to shave precious milliseconds off the time taken to perform certain tasks with the mouse. A colleague of mine shared with me some cool keyboard shortcuts for managing windows in a multiple monitor environment:

  • Windows Key + Left/Right Arrow:maximize the current window to the left/right pane of the screen
  • Windows Key + Left/Right Arrow (repeated):move the window to the other monitor
  • Windows Key + Shift + Left/Right Arrow:move the window to the other monitor (without an intermediary step)
  • Windows Key + Up Arrow:maximize the window to the full screen
  • Windows Key + Down Arrow: restore the window from being maximized/minimize the window

This post at has a few more useful shortcuts in this category.

    Hi there just wanted to give you a brief heads up
    and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure
    why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.
