    Hey,

    Sometimes using Safari I have several windows open. I would like to know is there a keyboard shortcut that allow me to move the current window to another desktop?

    Thanks.

    Keyboard shortcut? No. You can use Command + M to minimize the window, but there's nothing that will move it to another monitor. You can drag it to another monitor.

    I think he means to another desktop (spaces) on the same monitor, not a different monitor
    But I could be mistaken too

    I am not aware of one, but that doesn't mean their isn't one
    I usually drag it to a new desktop

    Under system prefs - keyboard - Keyboard shortcuts select the mission control part and you can enable the "Switch to desktop x." If you do that, you can just click and hold the top bar of a window, hit your shortcut, and it will put it in that desktop.

    Not sure if that is exactly what you're looking for or not.

    That is exactly what I meant. :)

    That's EXACTLY what I wanted. Thank you very very much that was great! :D
    However, it involves using both hands - maybe there's a way to use only one hand ? :)

    I just 3 finger swipe up to bring up mission control and drag the window to whichever desktop I want.

    I'm aware of this option, however I think there are better ways. The suggested option is pretty neat.

    Well, yep there is. BetterTouchTool. You can use a keyboard shortcut to move to not only another monitor, but different locations on that monitor (center, bottom half, maximize, etc).
