Is there a short key to move a window between the different connected monitors?

In my setup I have 2 monitors in use. Usually I am on Unity, but I also use Cinnamon. Is there a way to move a window from say the left monitor to the right monitor?

  • @RoVo Actually, your first suggested link seems to only focus on one monitor. The second link you provided though using compiz may be a possible solution. – Socrates May 23 '18 at 14:06
  • Yes, I tried the compiz solution myself and it works. If I retract my first vote, I cannot add another one. ;-) – pLumo May 23 '18 at 14:08
  • @RoVo Then post an answer and I'll accept. – Socrates May 23 '18 at 14:10
  • no, your question is a duplicate and should be closed as such – pLumo May 23 '18 at 14:11
  • @karel That's the second link that RoVo already has posted above. – Socrates May 23 '18 at 22:53

Yes, you can use the keyboard shortcut Super + Shift + Left/Right.

  • doesn't work for me (16.04) – pLumo May 23 '18 at 12:48
  • I work on 18/04 but you can try change it in Keyboards => Navigation => Move window one monitor to the left and Move window one monitor to the right – iatanasov May 23 '18 at 13:02
  • yes sure it might work on 18.04, but the question is about unity – pLumo May 23 '18 at 13:03
  • can you try above approach – iatanasov May 23 '18 at 13:04
  • unity != gnome, no there is no such option in unity. – pLumo May 23 '18 at 13:05
