    Is there a way to move an application to another space in Spaces using a keyboard shortcut? For example if anyone is familiar with Compiz or Beryl you can use control+alt+shift+directional key to move an application to a new space without using the mouse or the mode where you can see all the spaces at ounce.

    Good question. I haven't run into the need for this yet, but I am almost sure this would have come up eventually. That would definitely be a nice feature. Looking forward to any ideas or workarounds that may come up for this.

    Move the pointer over the window, and hold down the mouse button while pressing the Control key and an arrow or number key.

    Brilliant... does involve the mouse, so not completely keyboard only, but definitely saves time. Excellent.

    Moving Application in Spaces Using Keyboard Shortcut

    Having Spaces assigned to a “Hot Corner” is great, but if you’re trying to speed things up just that little bit more, keyboard shortcuts are the way to go. Really, there are two you’ll be using alot of. Firstly, CTRL and a direction will move you to which ever space resides in that direction from your current space. So if you’re currently in the bottom right, and you press CTRL and Left Arrow, you will now be looking at the bottom left Space.The second incredibly useful keyboard shortcut allows you to jump directly to a space. If you only have 2 or 4, this may not seem that useful, but when you end up like me, with 6-10 spaces, it’s very handy. The way to do this is to hold the CTRL key and press the number corresponding to the space you want to see. It’s that easy.
