Quickly place a window to another screen using only the keyboard

Sort of like CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+Arrow but only to my other monitor, not to a completely separate workspace.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

depending on your monitor setup you can try the (awesome) shortcuts ctrl+alt+numX, where numX is a number on the numpad.

great for quickly resizing a window and/or moving it on the screen.

e.g. ctrl+alt+num4 puts the window on the left side of the screen, ctrl+alt+num6 puts it on the right

I don't think this works for multiple monitors – Marco Ceppi May 7 '11 at 12:32
This does work with multiple monitors, but it's monitor sensitive, so if the window is on my left monitor and I press CTRL+ALT+NUM9, it will get moved to the top-right corner of my left monitor. But I'd like something that will move it to the right monitor, at which point I could CTRL+ALT+NUM9 to put it in the top-right corner of my right monitor. – stevecomrie May 8 '11 at 4:03
