comment Method to get windows left open on second monitor which is off back to primary monitor?
This seems to be the best answer for moving a dialog box, like the master password dialog displayed when opening a KeePass database. Win + Arrow doesn't work on such a dialog, with or without pressing Alt + Space first. Win + Shift + Arrow works perfectly, on both the dialog and normal application windows.

While this works for regular application windows it doesn't work for dialog windows. For example, I just tried this trick when opening a KeyPass2 database. KeyPass2 opens a dialog box for the user to enter the master password for the database before it opens the main application. The dialog stays stubbornly on the wrong (off) monitor. Once I entered the password and clicked ok the main app opened and I was able to use this trick to move the main app window to the correct monitor.

comment Visual Studio 2010 Graphic Artifacts
I had a similar problem in Visual Studio 2013, only not as bad as described in the post above, and the fix described above worked for me. In VS 2013 go to Tools > Options > Environment > General and uncheck "Automatically adjust visual experience based on client performance" then uncheck "Use hardware graphics acceleration if available".
