I usually use two or more screens (extended desktop) while working on my PCs. I'd like to have an shortcut to move a window to another screen quickly without using the mouse / without dragging it there. Is there a feature in Win XP, which I can use for that?

Note: As I cannot install custom software at work, i'd prefer a way which doesn't need any additional tool. If there are only third-party tools to acchieve this, please name them anyway - I could use them at least at home.

Thanks in advance

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

I just found out, that Win 7 supports this feature: SHIFT + WIN + Arrow allows to send windows to other screens. As I'll get a new laptop running Win 7 soon, it's not too bad, that XP doesn't support this.

Sadly, I have to deal with XP at work a bit longer.

MultiMonitor will "Add a Move to Monitor button to windows applications (XP)."

Why didn't you specify the product's full name and so saved me some minutes? I deleted my answer. – harrymc Jul 5 '10 at 12:07
There is only one program called MultiMonitor (Google it), and I brought the same quote you did, it's not enough? – Matan Eldan Jul 5 '10 at 12:21
Well, evidently it wasn't enough :) – harrymc Jul 6 '10 at 20:18
