Windows Keyboard Trick to Move Application Windows

You can use [WIN]+[Arrow] to move windows around your desktop, and dock them side to side. Here is a list of what each arrow does:

[Win]+[Left Arrow] will Dock the active window to the left of the current screen
[Win]+[Right Arrow] will Dock the active window to the right of the current screen
[Win]+[Up Arrow] will Maximize the active window
[Win]+[Down Arrow] will Restore from the Maximized Position, or Minimize as an active window

If you have multiple monitors then you can move the application window from one monitor to the other by press…

[Win]+[Shift]+[Right|Left Arrow] Move Active Windows to the Next Monitor (Right or Left)
