Move window to virtual desktop Win10

Does DisplayFustion work with WIN10 virtual desktops?

I've switched from a dual monitor setup to a 34" ultrawide (lovin' it, btw) and spend most of my time moving windows between virtual desktops. But the Functions area doesn't have anything to move the window to the next virtual desktop. Is this supported? Script?

Not at the moment, but this is currently on our feature request list, so I've added your vote to it. We'll be sure to let you know if/when we're able to implement it in the future.

Thanks!

Mr. Keith, might you have an update or ETA on when this could be ready. A guesstimate? 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, not on the TO-DO list? Anything will be helpful.

Thanks for rapid response.

I'd find a feature like this very helpful since I do the same on both my desktop and my laptop. My desktop I have multiple monitors, but I do different things like personal stuff and work and have different virtual desktops to keep related windows separated.

We're hoping to include it in the next version, but our priorities can shift to other things depending on how development goes, so no promises!

Yes please! This would be a perfect addition to DisplayFusion.
Currently I'm using a scheduled task to run this utility but it's clunky and has to be restarted each time I resume from sleep: https://github.com/Eun/MoveToDesktop

As a workaround, you can use this script. It just moves the focused window to the next desktop.

I found a solution. Using this https://github.com/Grabacr07/VirtualDesktop/tree/master library, to make script in DF for managing virtual desktops.

I tried to describe all possible cases, but I might have forgotten or missed something, write if something was unclear or not working correctly.

If you do not have a NuGet package manager or VS, use this http://packages.nuget.org/api/v1/package/VirtualDesktop/2.0.0-beta3 for download package. After downloading, rename .nupkg package to .zip. Unzip and copy the VirtualDesktop.dll from lib\net46 folder to a separate folder for simple use.

@Keith, send to repository?

Code

Awesome feature request. I came to this page looking for similar functionality. Windows 10 doesn't have any inbuilt shortcut to move windows across the virtual desktop. While Microsoft adds this, I would like if Display Fusion can have an elegant solution. I don't need anything fancy. A simple keyboard shortcut to move the active window to another virtual desktop would suffice. Additional management feature and intuitiveness of functionality would be an added bonus. Please keep up the good work. Love your product.

I would also like this functionality. I find it a pain to have to bring up the desktop switcher to move a window between desktops.

Any ideas when and if this feature would be added to the DF?
