A great keyboard shortcut in Windows is Windows Key+Left Arrow/Right Arrow which makes a window take up the entire left/right half of the screen. Is there any native way to configure windows with more shortcuts like this?

I'm not looking for anything incredible but for starters I was thinking the following would be useful:

  • Windows Key+Left Arrow+Up Arrow: Go to top-left corner of screen.
  • Windows Key+Left Arrow+Down Arrow: Go to bottom-left corner of screen.
  • Windows Key+Right Arrow+Up Arrow: Go to top-right corner of screen.
  • Windows Key+Right Arrow+Down Arrow: Go to bottom-right corner of screen.

More functionality would be good too like, making a window maximize the height according to its quadrant but not its width.

I don't think there is a native way to configure this.

You can do it easily as shown in this answer, especially focus to used WinMove command. It moves and sizes a window to given coordinates. (You actually do not need other commands shown in the answer. And you might need SysGet command to base your coordinates on actual screen area size before you use WinMove.)

On my PC I have defined actions similar to what you request, but they utilize Windows Logo+Alt+arrows. Windows Logo+two arrows (as you request) might be more difficult to implement.
