    I've been doing a little digging and haven't spotted any shortcuts or automator scripts to do this

    What I want to do is to set up a hotkey to send my active window to a specific space based on what key I press, such as Command+Option+5 sending my active window to space 5.

    Is this possible with either a hotkey or a script? I'm unfamiliar with AppleScript unfortunately so I'm unaware of the finer points of it ^^;

    running Leopard 10.5.8 on a MBP Core Duo 2

    that was quick, thanks a bunch!


    I'm still baffled as to why Spaces didn't have stuff like this built into it in the first place o_O

    Outside of the fact that you have to click and hold on the window, they are basically the same. Unless you were moving the current window, you would have to find and click on the window to bring the window you want to move to the foreground anyway.

    Using your existing Spaces hotkeys and clicking on your window are pretty simple.

    But you have both, so decide for yourself.

    Cheers.
