On MS Windows we can use Super + Arrow to move a window to the right and the left of the screen, maximize, minimize and even move it to another screen. Is there a way to configure this feature on Gnome?
Ctrl + Alt + NUMPAD 4 (left edge) Ctrl + Alt + NUMPAD 6 (right edge)
Make sure you are using the NUMPAD cursor keys, not the dedicated ones, if you have those. Otherwise, it'll switch workspaces.
Note that these shortcuts only work on non-maximized windows. Un-maximizing any selected window can be done using
Ctrl + Alt + NUMPAD 5 (center)
List of Unity keyboard shortcuts here in case you haven't seen them.
The Put Windows extension implements this feature. After installing it, Super+Shift+Left and Super+Shift+Right move the active window to the previous/next screen, respectively -- just as in Windows. This works even in a three-monitor setup, and also moving maximized windows now works reliably.
Frychiko's solution works great in a two-monitor setting but suffers issues when moving maximized windows.
Tested with Ubuntu 13.04.
In Ubuntu 17.10, the Shift+Super+Arrows keyboard shortcuts move the window between the different monitors.
Can be modified under Settings > Devices > Keyboard > Navigation > Move window one monitor up/down/to the left/to the right.
ALT+F7 which select window and move using arrow. Press Enter to release the window.
Adding to Frychiko 's answer:
- ctrl + alt + num_pad_5 maximizes and minimize window
- ctrl + alt + num_pad_8 or num_pad_2 moves windows to the top and bottom edge respectively.
it's really easy to achieve this on laptops too - just add an fn key to your combination and you're done!
Tested on Ubuntu 18.04 (Pop!_OS) with Gnome 3.28.2:
Moving window in current display: Ctrl + Super + Arrows
Moving window to other display: Ctrl + Shift + Super + Arrows
The initial answer works (at least) for Pop!_OS 18.04 - the keyboard shourtcuts might be custom.
Later found this Gnome wiki page which states that it should be Shift + Super + Arrows Left/Right
By using Ctrl + Shift + Alt + Arrow combination, you can move any windows to the other screens.
