Mac OS X: Tools that enable keyboard shortcuts to move a window from one monitor to another (via: Ask Different)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/04/10

One of the frustrating things about using a Mac, is the pain to find keyboard shortcuts for everyday tasks.

Having had RSI in the early 1990s, I’ve learned to use the keyboard for virtually everything. So I’m used to find keyboard shortcuts on most operating systems, or write scripts to make common tasks easier.

On most *nix or Windows systems, those shortcuts are either there, easy to enable or tools are there to enable them.

For OS X, somehow this seems much harder, so I’m always glad to bumped into answers to questions like

Is there a keyboard shortcut to move a window from one monitor to another? – OSX/Ask Different.

From the answers in that question it is clear this is not built-in behaviour in OS X.

Also the answers show a few tools that can (some free, some paid). So those are on my research list.

But I’m already glad to know that these tools are available.

I’m also going to dig a bit more into Hands-on with OS X Mavericks: Multiple-display support | Macworld, as I’m sure there are some subtle things with multi-monitor setups that I’ve  not yet found myself.
