One of the advantages of Microsoft Windows is multitasking, which allows you to run more applications and open more windows at a time. Another advantage is a support for multiple monitors. When your screen real estate gets too small to display all your windows, you can use one, two or more monitors as additional displays for your desktop.
Imagine two or three monitors sitting on a desk side by side or (in rare occasions) one monitor on top of the other. You open the Display Settings dialog, sel ect Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor option, and Windows stretches your virtual screen over several monitors. Now you can use the newly found real estate as you would with a bigger screen.
For example, you can grab a window and move it between the screens. Or, you can stretch a window to span across the two or more monitors. The latter is ideal for those times when you want to see double the number of columns in a spreadsheet, for example. Additionally, you can clone your primary screen so that other screens will mimic exactly what it is displaying.
A very clever little piece of software called Actual Window Manager offers several options to make your work with multiple monitors easy. It adds its own buttons to every system window's title bar and after that windows can be manipulated in many different ways, not possible before. One of the buttons is Move to Next Monitor.
If you want to move a window fr om one screen to another, you can click on the Move to Next Monitor title button, and a window will move to the next monitor. In other words, if a window is displayed on Monitor 1, it moves to Monitor 2. No need to drag it manually!
A right-click on the Move to Next Monitor button opens a drop-down menu with a list of all available monitors.
With another click, you can sel ect any monitor from the list to move a window to it. The same can be done from the system window menu because it also has a list of all available monitors.
The Move to Next Monitor feature is extremely useful to quickly move a window from the secondary monitor to the primary one, and vice versa.
For users, who constantly work with particular applications, Actual Window Manager offers a very handy Move to monitor at startup option. It allows you selecting a monitor to display a particular application window at startup without having to spend time on arranging windows manually each time you launch your system or reset it.
If monitors have different screen resolutions, Actual Window Manager can resize a window proportionally when you move it fr om Monitor 1 to Monitor 2. Thanks to this feature, a window takes the same percentage of the screen as on the previous monitor.
Move to monitor at startup is great because it helps you to organize your desktop workplace for convenient computation; all frequently used windows are displayed on the primary monitor and rarely used windows are displayed on the secondary monitor(s).
The Move to monitor at startup option can be coupled with Align window at startup and Resize window at startup so that a window is moved to a particular monitor, automatically resized depending on the predefined percentage fr om the size of the current monitor or the size of the entire virtual desktop and positioned in the predefined area of the desktop.
Actual Window Manager can also adjust window position to make a window fully visible. This feature is helpful when a window got out of the visible area after moving between monitors.
Along with Move to next monitor feature, there is also Maximize to desktop option, which allows you stretching a window to span across several monitors. This feature is activated at a right-click on the standard Maximize/Restore button. Maximize to desktop is great in those times when multiple monitors are used to show some video demonstration or presentation.
