Here’s a quick tip that one of my colleagues showed my this week that makes working with multiple monitors a lot easier. Thanks to @FreeRangeEggs for this tip.
You’ve got 2 windows (A and B) and you want to dock them side by side on monitor 1.
Its easy to dock window A to the left on monitor 1. Just drag the window to the left of the monitor and it will “snap” or dock to the left side and fill up half the screen.
But now if we try to do the same with windows B, instead of docking the the right of monitor 1, the window just glides across onto monitor 2.
So how do we get window B to dock to the right side of monitor 1? First select window B then use the keyboard shortcut WINDOWS KEY + RIGHT ARROW.
Simple as that.
Note: You can also use WINDOWS KEY + LEFT ARROW to dock to the left side of the current monitor. This can help you do the reverse (that is, if you are on monitor 2 and want to dock a window to the left side)
Thank you, Cameron! I found this article very helpful. Thank you for writing such a clear article.
