Any chance of overriding Win+Shift+Left/Right to move to prev/next monitor split?

When I try to configure Win+Shift+Left for "Move Window to Previous Monitor" and vice-versa, I get:

The Key Combination bind failed.
The Key Combination is already in use. There are a few reasons why this can happen:
- The Key Combination is already assigned elsewhere in this application
- Another application is already using this Key Combination
- A built-in Windows function is using this Key Combination

However, I noticed that Fancy Zones PowerToy does support overriding the default Windows behavior to move across zones via its "Override Windows Snap hotkeys (win+arrow) to move between zones" configuration option. That's also open source, so perhaps you could implement the same thing in DisplayFusion so that the standard Windows snap left/right keystroke could be used with DisplayFusion monitor splits?

We can definitely check it out. My guess would be that they're using keyboard hooks instead of global hotkeys. We do have an open feature request for this, so I'll add your vote, and this info to the ticket
