I absolutely love using the keyboard for doing things and use Win7's Win+Left, Win+Right, Win+Up, etc a lot. They save so much time.

However, a friend of mine who uses fluxbox for a window manager has shortcuts for nudging windows by a few pixels in a given direction. I would very much like to do the same - does anyone know of software of built-in functionality to do this in Windows 7?

Thank you!

    Well, the answer would be to use alt+space to emulate right clicking on the title bar, and m to select move, followed by the answer above. Apr 28 '11 at 0:02
  • Damn, I'm already used to Alt-Space being the Launchy shortcut. May 4 '11 at 1:12

WindowSpace provides this functionality. See http://www.ntwind.com/software/windowspace/moving-and-resizing.html

  • Works like a charm. It's not free, but it does the job. I'd prefer a free alternative, but I'll take this for now. May 19 '11 at 23:41
