Adding a Mac Keyboard Shortcut For Moving a Window To Another Display

If you have multiple displays, it is handy to be able to quickly move the current window to the other display. There is already a Menu Bar command for this. But with a little work, you can add a keyboard shortcut as well.

    Great tip Gary! I absolutely will be using this to switch Zoom window to separate display for conference calls. Already set the commands up and works perfectly!

    Great tip. I used Command Option 1, 2 , 3, etc. for multiple displays and used Command Option left/right arrow for Tile Window to Left/Right of Screen.

    Oops. I meant Move Window to Left/Right of Screen, not Tile.

    One issue that I can't resolve that is worth pointing out: Most people that have dual monitor setups are likely to have the same monitor for each of them. Example being Mac Mini M1 with two LG HDR 4K monitors. The "name" of each monitor is the same in the menus, so I can't differentiate between which monitor I want when creating shortcut.

    Is there a way to set this up for Adobe CC applications like Photoshop? The move display option is not in that menu bar

    Ryan: If there is no consistent menu item to assign a keyboard shortcut to, there's not much you can do.
