Is there a quick keyboard shortcut to switch an application from one monitor to the next when using a 2-monitor setup?

When you say switch I'm assuming that you mean move the actual window from one screen to the next. This is done by either win+shift+ (or ) . If you simply have two apps running and want to switch between the two then the use of either alt+tab or win+tab will quickly switch between apps. (the win+tab looks cooler).

Thanks! That's exactly what I wanted, and the Win+Tab looks like it might be useful also. – Stewbob Oct 22 '10 at 19:33

Display Fusion will give you that ability, and many many more options for multiple desktops.

Display Fusion is great and I have the software myself, but since he has win-7 there are already built in keyboard shortcuts for it. – KronoS Oct 22 '10 at 19:29
