I had two monitors and I disabled one of them. And now one window is stocked on the disabled monitor. How can I move it to the laptop's monitor?

Many thanks.

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.

One simply way would be to restart the computer with the monitor disabled. –  Ramhound Aug 13 '13 at 11:01

I would select / focus it in the taskbar and then hit ShiftWinRight until the window appears on the right monitor.

Actually, Shift+Win+Right will immediately move it to the other monitor. –  Ian Aug 13 '13 at 9:49

Press Alt+Tab key then Space.. after that move the window to your monitor with the arrows. for example it the disabled monitor was in the right of the current monitor, to move the window from the disabled monitor press left arrow. Hope you got it :)

ok. many thanks. I moved it :) –  MattCollW Aug 13 '13 at 10:22

Select the windows in the taskbar and hit Win+Shift+Left Arrow / Right Arrow


Select the window in taskbar and hit Alt+Space+M and hold the left mouse button down to move the window (don't know if it works in Windows 8).

The M stands for Move, could be different if you use another language as I do.
