Windows 7 – Multi-Monitor Shortcuts

Filed under: Microsoft Windows — Andrew @ 6:51 pm
Here are some nice little shortcuts I found when playing in Windows 7:
  • Windows + Down Arrow – Minimize Window (if not maximized) or Restore Down (if maximized)
  • Windows + Up Arrow – Maximize Window
  • Windows + Left Arrow – Dock window on left hand side of the screen (if already docked, it moves it to the next screen)
  • Windows + Right Arrow – Dock window on right hand side of the screen (if already docked, it moves it to the next screen)
  • Windows + Shift + Left Arrow – Send window as-is (i.e. Maximized) to Left Monitor (if already on the left window, it will move to the rightmost window)
  • Windows + Shift + Right Arrow – Send window as-is (i.e. Maximized) to Right Monitor (if already on the right window, it will move to the rightmost window)

I hope this makes using multiple monitors a little more convenient in Windows 7.
